I was teaching third grade at the height of the Harry Potter madness so I can’t help but be more than a little bit familiar with it. There’s no need to explain anything to me when it comes to anything in the wizard/witches world, not when I used to get detailed essays about Hogwarts and its students and faculty for composition writing class, carefully rendered maps of the magical world for art, musicals about it for drama, and chapters read out loud during read-aloud time.

Now, years later, I was asked why I never painted this set. Could it be because I knew the story too well and didn’t think I could do it justice? So it was up to a few fans of the series to tell me exactly what they wanted and I hope I did do it justice!
