Everything's coming up roses (or at least the grass is showing), so glad spring has arrived! These little white beauties were a present that I have been enjoying for the last week. They brightened my spirit, as roses are my favorite flower.
Muffins have also been popping up lately. Pumpkin & Apple Muffins in pretty tartan liners.
I am looking forward to the loveliness of spring...
Red, or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf 11"x14" Acrylic on paper
I have been a longtime fan of fairytales and especially the Brothers Grimm, so when I was approached by Draw a Dot to work on a collaboration project of 4 pieces from the Haute Couture S/S 2015, I knew that I wanted to dress classic fairytale characters in them.
I was asked to choose four dresses from the Haute Couture show, and illustrate them in my own interpretations. So the first is Brothers Grimm classic, Little Red Riding Hood, wearing a Christian Dior piece.
Mr. Big Bad Wolf is speaking to Red Riding Hood about a shortcut he knows to Grandmother's house. His intentions seem less than trustworthy.
Diggery Groundhog loves the farmer's turnips. There is no way a turnip can be prepared that Diggery will not wholly enjoy. If asked the best way to serve them however, he will most likely tell you mashed with a spot of butter and pepper.
As of the moment, he has put on his best bowler for a visit to Nell Hedgehog's house. The two of them meet every Tuesday and Thursday and play cribbage over brunch.
He is sorry to admit that Nell has bested him the last score of games.
Nell & Diggery both 5"x7" Acrylic on paper
And with that, this little fella finishes up this mini set.
I've fallen in love with this tiny series, although I'll admit Diggery has burrowed his way into my heart most of all.
