Alphabetical Archival Advent Calendar – ‘Y’

Going to the Library. Watercolour illustration. We Like to Read. Hohm Press 2008
After spending a number days worrying about Y, and where I might look amongst sketchbooks, archive boxes plan chest draws and digital files, here is the image I have chosen for 25th letter of our alphabet.

Y is for…..Yay! It’s the Yarwoods!!!

I took some photos of our friends Tracy and Frankie Yarwood on their way home from school one day, with a young Ferdie comfortably aboard the Radio Flyer. With the addition of books, a few more characters and a background it was the perfect solution to a brief in this little book about reading with children. I’ve just discovered that you can preview the whole book at Kalindi

The original painting was framed and donated to a library in Arizona… I wonder if it’s still there?
