Answer to Monday's Riddle: Time to Draw...

Jessica Haight in the studio 
Excellent guessing, Riddlers. This week it's all about drawing, which makes me very happy! I love to draw. It's such a relaxing pastime. We're hosting a drawing contest right now! If you also love to make art, send us a scene from THE SECRET FILES OF FAIRDAY MORROW, and you'll be entered to win a fun mystery prize, plus the winner's picture will be displayed on our site for the world to see- you could be famous! The contest runs until April, and it's open to all. We hope to see your inspired artwork.

Stop by Friday to see the children's picture book my little sister, Margo, can't wait to tell you about. It's one of my favorite books too. See you all around the book block! ~ F

Blank page is set, and you open the door. The scene is new, you're ready to soar. Once it's decided where you'll be going, there's no way to tell what will be showing. Scribble and think, color and texture- no need to listen to anyones lecture. More of a skill taught by the self, an escape that takes you off of the shelf. What to see? What to know? There are so many places in the mind to go. Wish for a sight? See it appear. What you're doing is the answer I'll cheer. 

What am I referring to? Answer: Drawing 

Here's a sneak peek at the author illustrations by Jessica Haight. So much fun to escape into the secrets of the Begonia House. Enjoy the mystery. ; )
