Robert's Snow 2004

In 2004 illustrator Grace Lin invited me to take part in a very special fundraising effort, Robert's Snow- for cancer's cure. 100 children's book illustrators were each asked to paint a little wooden snowflake which would be auctioned off during the holiday season. The proceeds went to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute/The Jimmy Fund. I called my snowflake, Edward Hopper Snowfake, an interpretive copy of Edward Hopper's New York Corner, 1913 with extrapolated dendrites and snow.
