Portrait of Rhonda Mitchell

Rhonda Mitchell is an artist as well as a writer. Her artwork includes portraits (paintings of people) and book illustrations. She paints in oils and in watercolors. Also, she makes fiber art. She hopes that readers of her books will learn to value art and get a better sense of family.

Take another look at the paintings in The Talking Cloth. Which painting do you think is the best one? Why? Write an opinion about that painting. (In an opinion, you tell what you think about something. You also explain why you think that way.) When you are done, share your opinion with your family or friends.
