What did you like about the book:  Lucy loves to paint with colors until a variety of animals (rabbit, elephant, alligator, chicken, pigs, frog) appear with something to say about her painting that shakes her confidence –  until her cat friend provides encouragement. Lucy finds her way back to enjoying painting and feeling satisfaction in her creations.

Colorful illustrations created with acrylic paint on canvas.
