I painted this watercolor illustration called SLUGGER AND KICKER for my storybook called MY BROTHER AND I. It is the story of two brothers and the activities they enjoy in summer and winter. Like most children, their dearest wish is to own a pet. The illustrations for this story feature an imaginary dog who is included in all their sports, games and activities. In this painting two young boys are racing down the sidewalk on skateboards with (or without) their imaginary dog.

The original painting of this image was painted as an illustration for my book called MY BROTHER AND I and includes an imaginary dog. I have received several requests for this image without the dog so a little photo manipulation eliminated the dog from the digital photo of the watercolor. Art prints of this image with or without the dog are offered above.




I painted this action watercolor painting of two boys and their imaginary dog called Slugger And Kicker for my story book for children called MY BROTHER AND I (written and illustrated by Hanne Lore Koehler). This story chronicles the sports and activities that two brothers enjoy together through summer and winter as they grow up. Written in first person singular from the point of view of one of the boys, the story is told in rhyme with easy flowing rhythm. Like most children, the boys have a special wish for a pet which, for now, lives in their imagination. Featured in this watercolor painting are the boys playing baseball and soccer with their imaginary dog. One of the boys is up to bat in a baseball game while their imaginary dog is the catcher behind home plate. The other brother is playing soccer in the background.

The illustrations for this children's book are hand-painted watercolor paintings for which I used photos of our grandsons as reference. I composed the scene and the imaginary dog from my imagination, including details of the subjects and an impressionistic style for background trees and foliage. Order the book in GALLERY 23

Like many children our grandsons grew up playing in local little league baseball and soccer leagues and my husband and I went to watch many of their games. With countless photos of their baseball and soccer games and friends to draw from, the references that I needed for this painting were readily available.
