A Good List

Foggy Landscape

Foggy Landscape

Mr. Putter sets out to write “The Mystery of Lighthouse Cove” in the book
Mr. Putter and Tabby Write the Book by Cynthia Rylant.
He had everything a writer would need;
a soft chair, a warm fire, plenty of paper and a good cat.
And he did what writers do: ate a lot, and took many naps.

Mr Putter

Maybe I need more naps.

Did I mention he had a good cat?


He discovered that writing a book was much more challenging than it might at first appear. But he didn’t give up! He changed directions and wrote “Good Things,” an enchanting list of his favorite things instead.

Inspired, I decided to simply share a list of artists who have used pastel.
