I Love Ludwig

Not only is "Madeline" a wonderful children's book, the author was a wonderful painter.
He was brought up in the hotel service world and even owned a small restaurant for a while.
At one time he was going to collaborate on a children's book with Jacqueline Onassis. Alas, it never came to be.

Here are a few of my sketchbook paintings in the style of Ludwig Bemelmans.


  1. Your sketches are wonderful. Very expressive!

  2. Janet these are delightful, I love your verve for life
