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. 6 and 7 of the book. One to the left depicts a salamander (sort of a cross between a lizard and a frog); the one to the right shows tadpoles (a growth stage which salamanders do not have) The paintings for this spread can be separated and Kristin will sign each one. Amazing colors and details....painted in oil on gessoed paper, each image is 10" x 10.5" (the total dimensions 10" x 21". The price is for two...so that you are two interior paintings here!
