The Otter's Riverbank Birthday Party 14"x11" Acrylic on paper
"Look, It's the Otter's Riverbank Birthday Party!"
I made this as a birthday present for my dear Mum today! She always told me of a children's book she had growing up that had otters in it, Little Putt-Putt. So knowing her fondness of them, I took a whole troop of rambunctious little 'fellas and have them throwing a birthday bash on the side of the riverbank.
Take note of the little guy singing (second from the left), showing his teeth and belting out a tune among this scene of otter camaraderie.
This little guy floating along on his back with a slice of cake, became a personal favorite of mine..
...and here is a deed-most-foul about to take place, I'm afraid Mr. Rohu-Fish doesn't stand much of a chance..
Happy Birthday Mama! I love you.
(By the way, I couldn't resist and I actually showed it to her a few days early. She seemed to love it!)
