Happy Monday, everyone! I have had so many witches flying around in my sketchbook over the last week, all of them good and one that you might recognize just floated in from her big pink bubble...

Glinda the Good Witch of the North from the Wizard of Oz, at least here is my interpretation of her!

I was looking at a book that my Dad gave me in 1990, the other day. It is the entire script of the Wizard of Oz along with movie photographs, one of my all time favorite books and my Dad signed it and gave it to me for Christmas that year. He's not with us anymore but I felt like he was enjoying the words and pictures right along with me.

That was one of our favorite movies to watch together when I was growing up and never missed it when it used to only be aired on tv at Easter. I cant even count how many times I've seen it! And I think that's why "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is one of my favorite songs because it always makes me think of my Dad:)

Do you have any favorite memories with your family watching the Wizard of Oz with your family? I'd LOVE to hear them!

I hope you enjoy my Glinda sketch!
