Item Description: 5×7 Original gouache and watercolor painting, title: “The Wardrobe.” Comes in a small standing picture frame. Inspired by “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” by C.S. Lewis. The reason for this particular painting is that one of my favorite books growing up was the Narnia series, and I always dreamed of walking through a wardrobe to get to Narnia. My hardcover book from 1984 ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’ is also my favorite physical book, illustrated by the incredible Michael Hague.
Donated By: Laura Fisk
