Kristin created the cover painting and all the full color interior illustrations for "Amphibians" published by Picture Window Books, 2009. The books were relatively short (conceived for children ages 5-8) so the paintings are as colorful and lively as they are accurate - true treasures of natural history paintings! Most were painted as "two-page spreads" - as this painting is, the images were reproduced on p. 16 and 17 of the book. One to the left depicts a toad, and to the right, a frog - both in their natural habitats. Brilliantly painted in oil on gessoed paper, with total dimensions 10" x 21" and comes signed by Kest.
