IF Fail

When I saw the word for IF this week, it reminded me of a painting in my new book and its about time that I post again! In this part of the book the main character is feeling very sad because she thinks that her friends have FAILed her. This book is really great for girls at the preadolescent stage. Remember being that age and trying to figure out who you were and always so worried what your peers would think of you? Sometimes it feels like it would be great to go back but when you remember those times, I'm happy to be where I am:-) I'm busy working on my next book now. It should be finished at the end of next month, so I should have some new paintings to post in a couple of weeks!
