The DeSoto Arts and Humanities Council honors the August Artist of the Month, Laverne Bowen Keating, whose charming prints are hanging in the lobby of DeSoto Memorial Hospital through the month of August.

These lovely prints are from a children’s book that Keating illustrated, titled “Sally O’Mally’s Incredible Day” by Leslie Albritton. Illustrating this book is her first attempt at a really large project, but she said she enjoyed doing it very much. The book is based on Albritton’s observation of a mallard duck family’s trials on Lake Placid. The illustrations are very true to life with incredible detail and thoughtfulness.
