Painting of Ruby June freeing Charter Jack

This one is going to pose a challenge when I am laying out the book, primarily what to do about the text.  I’m guessing I will have to do white text on a darker background.  Unfortunately I lost track of the fact that there would have to be text here and just went ahead with the painting as if it wasn’t a book.  Shame on me for losing focus, though the fact that it took over 3 years to finally bring this one home, I guess it shouldn’t be that big of a shock.  Ah the things I have learned…

In any case, this scene shows Ruby June freeing Charter Jack after the Deep Ones skedaddled.  Lucky for us that all it takes is the curiosity of a small girl to unhinge the Deep Ones.
