mother’s tale

Posted by on May 17, 2013 in Here Come the Humpbacks | 0 comments


I received the sweetest Mother’s Day card from my daughter, this watercolor of a humpback floating among flower petals. She knows as well as anybody I have whales on the brain. We were in Boston for my nephew’s graduation, and shared delicious time with family.

A little rain didn’t dampen our spirits in the least. Let a smile be your umbrella.


Before leaving town, the sun came out. Boston can be so pretty.


My daughter also took some lovely photos in the Public Gardens.


Upon returning home, it was back to the drawing table, working on a migration game for my upcoming book launch for Here Come the Humpbacks! at the Portland Public Library on June 1. It’s a story all about a mother whale and her calf making the long trek up to the Gulf of Maine. Daisy posed for this illustration for the Whale Watch station.


Here’s the whole scoop!
