A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
It’s a treat to see Leah Palmer Preiss’s illustrations. They are lush, whimsical, heartwarming! Whether she has painted fur or thorns -- you can almost feel it. As in previous years, I gave her five words and then I waited patiently while she summoned her magic. This week you’ll see what she did with those words.
See more of her work on her website or in A.Word.A.Day in previous years: 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011. You can reach her at (curiouser at mindspring.com).
