Island Breeze

Watercolor & gouache, 11x14
Island breeze. 
Filmy Curtains billow.
Exposing the verdant view.
No AC, no fans.
For the gentle winds caress. 
Light air fluffs the dress for night.
A tropical drink in sight.

   I accidentally found this YouTube video of a child reading my children's book "The Nothing Zoo" and it is so cute that I have to share it. 

And here are some other illustrations from the book. 
Note: I did this many years ago and had followup books on the environment, but at that time publishers weren't interested in saving our planet. So.... they sit in a drawer. A sad commentary on the industry. If anyone is interested in backing my books, let me know.
