felica olin’s artwork

I have been exchanging emails with Felicia Olin. She is a Springfield artist and her work is amazing. I spent time at her art show on the campus of University of Illinois Springfield with D and her work was even more amazing as I had the chance to study it up close. Amazing work  and craft. I’m also lucky to have a version of her painting called Day of the Dead on my wall. I contacted her to perhaps work on illustrating covers for some of my stories for the Antique Children Liqour Store series. Here is the first image she sent to me based on her reading of “Laundromat Story.”

I hope she has time to come up with some work for my story “Descansos.” I also hope I can perhaps draft out some story ideas I have based off of her work. And perhaps work with other artists.
