Happy Birthday Andrea Brown
My agent for children’s books in the USA is Laura Rennert of the marvellous Andrea Brown Literary. This year the head of the agency Andrea is celebrating a milestone birthday, and the other agents had the idea to commission a piece of original artwork from one of the agency’s illustrators to be framed and presented as a gift from the staff.
Guess which artist they chose?
I painted Andrea and the staff in front of a cabin of Big Sur Lodge, where the agency holds it’s annual Writing Workshops, a location that has deep significance and is full of memories for the agency.
The painting, which measures 43 x 37cm, was presented to Andrea on her birthday…. last night!
Many happy returns Andrea!
