This wonderful book, Imagination Land, is the result of the endless imagination of a child, Skylar, and the skill of an artist, Nicole Ichtertz. Nicole writes: Each painting began with a vision that Skylar held in her heart and mind that she shared with me. I listened to her words, and excitedly worked from her sketches, often taping them to the wall above my desk for inspiration. As the months passed and our time together grew, so did the paintings and their depth and vision unfolded in great detail, as we brought our ideas to life. On this journey there were often extraordinary and magical encounters, challenges overcome, friendships made, and the golden threads of synchronicity began to glow, as art and life overlapped and were woven together. What you w have in your hands is the fruit and the blossom that resulted from the ideas, conversations, and sketches of a 7 year old girl and her grown up artist-friend. (There was also a great deal of laughter, tea, and cocoa that brought it about!) We hope that you, your children, and loved ones, will find inspiration on these pages, weaving your own stories, and creating your own journeys. Blessings and Joy.
