thank you. henry is always telling me things like that about "bunny" one of his dearest imaginary friends. "bunny never goes to store because he makes everything" was this morning's revelation.

I just love your imaginary friends paintings, perhaps because I remember my own imaginary friend so fondly. :)

hi from sacramento. i think i'm in love with your work. give me a minute while i keep scrolling through. will you ever consider doing clover and imaginary friend again? this is my 'real' friend linda & me. we (our family) call her linda lu. she is only 5', dark haired. i'm 5'7 and blonde. we are what some would refer to a soulmates. ok, i'll go back to your site now. thank you!

I'm in love with Beth and Clover and wonder if you've ever considered giving them voice in a children's book. Please post more...I'm loading up my piggy bank...
