"It isn't the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it."
--Eileen Elias Freeman (from The Angels' Little Instruction Book)
My horse character was so moved by the farm dog bringing a carrot to him, that he had to reciprocate the act. (Or perhaps I fell so madly in love with these new characters in my head that I couldn't leave them for one illustration alone!)
Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful holiday season with an endless supply of tennis balls, carrots, and love for all the characters in your heads and in your lives. :-)
