Kites galore

Boy and Kite, detail

I’ve just joined the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and they ran a postcard contest for December. I didn’t win, but they’ve uploaded all the entries on their website, and I’d love it if you could give me some comments on mine, hopefully nice ones! Most of the other images feature girls, curiously, but my picture is of a very specific little boy – my Canadian grandson will probably be wanting to do this very thing as soon as he’s walking (and he very nearly is, or certainly thinks so)!  The bird in the image is of course a kite – a swallow tailed kite, to be precise, not likely to be found north of California.

This is the link to my image.  The whole gallery can be accessed here
