Hoppy Easter!

©Kathleen Rietz (today's image is for Leon)
Any of you who know me well know that Easter has a much deeper meaning to me than bunnies and coloring eggs. But I do enjoy the images of spring this time of year. Here in Chicago there is a winter storm warning today. I could use a little springtime festivities right now! Happy Easter everyone!
By the way, if you have some time this weekend, check out an interview with me An Interview with Kate! and see what else us Picture Bookies have been up to!

  1. This "hoppy" drawing is the perfect image to view before sleeping! Such a happy springy feeling! I will dream about pastel colored eggs and sunny skies. :) And yes, Easter means a whole lot more to me too. Hoppy Easter Kate!

  3. I really enjoy your illustrations. So much life and color!

    And, Happy Easter to you. As Easter has a deeper meaning to me too, you have inspired me to draw and post two sketches I had in mind for this holiday.

  5. This is beautiful. As much as Easter means to so many the fact that we also celebrate with eggs and flowers reminds us all of the rebirth that is about to occur. Your illustration shows such a sense of joy!

  14. Just got back from Florida and the sunshine. It's really a bummer to come back to winter storms. Have a happy Easter. May you have that spring feeling next week when it warms up again in the midwest.
