Golden Book nodp

Helping to clean out my mother's house a few years ago, I came upon this book--it took me back--way back--I just had to try some of these great illustrations for myself--so once again here is my tribute to Gordon Laite--thanks for the wonderful mind and dream altering illustrations!!
My revisited painting for today is a copy of this illustration by Gordon Laite:
'Rapunzel after Gordon Laite'

I used to love reading Golden Books too. I think I used to have this one. I love the dark and surreal scenes.

That darling granddaughter surely got a handful or your artistic genes! What a beautiful paperweight!!

Thanks Sheila! Yes, brings back memories to read them again! My granddaughter does love to draw and paint!

This book was before my time so it's my first time seeing this!

The illustrations are indeed wonderful and filled with a lot of character!

And I've just got to say it....I soooo want those pointed elf shoes he's wearing!!
