    This piece was used on the cover of Ray Bradbury's novel, Dandelion Wine, Bantam Books, 1990.

    "Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine -- uncork it slowly and inhale the heady aroma. Take a small sip. Suddenly you will find yourself transported into the strange and wonderful world of a most extraordinary twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding -- a world where miracles are just everyday occurrences and even the most ordinary things are pervaded by eerie glimmerings of the supernatural and the unknown."

    This painting was reproduced on pages 112-113 of Great Fantasy Art Themes From The Frank Collection by Jane and Howard Frank.

    From the Frank Collection.
