The Green Wood Door

thing_in_the_woods_framed

There are lots of doors. Writing is a door. Art is a door. One of the facets of creative work that has always fascinated me most is the ability to inspire creation. When you see really compelling artwork, you don’t just see a 2D image–you see a story–and that is the beginning of your own journey.

Wallie, my Friend, and I are considerably past the age of picture-book readers, but we still find picture books one of the most definite sources of inspiration. There’s something about words and pictures together that makes a powerful combination, and has all the life and action of movies and television.

One thought on “The Green Wood Door

  1. I second your thought that pictures & words together are more powerful than when seen/read separately. Like eating cheese or toast alone instead of choosing that yummy cheese sandwich.
