IF ~ Muddy


He contemplated the past, but the details were a little muddy...

This illustration is from the soon to be released book "The Enchanted Tree of Crooked Lake" written by Rachel Longhurst (R.A.K. Publishing) and Illustrated by Donna Pellegata (that's me)

When you purchase an item from my store, 10% of your purchase price will be donated to my favorite animal charities; Last Chance Animal Rescue and Horses Haven, both in lower MI. Which charity the donation goes to, will depend on the item purchased and I will love you forever from the bottom of my little black heart. They deserve a chance too.

Grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine depending on your preference
and take a long luxurious gander at my website
