Painting a Lightning Storm

An exclusive sneak peek at this lightning storm happening in 'Mother Aspen' The winds are howling, branches are cracking, and trees are toppling! This digital painting was done in Procreate & Photoshop. It's just a hint of what's in store in the upcoming non-fiction children's picture book written by Annette LeBox, hitting the shelves in 2024 through Groundwood Books publishing. I'm itching with excitement to flip through the pages and follow the aspen tree's journey through all the seasons!
