The Rat and His River 14"x11" gouache on paper
Ratty is perhaps my favorite Wind in the Willows character. He's sweet, sensible, down to earth and content. All he needs is his boat and the river and he considers himself well-off.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
-Ratty of The Wind in the Willows (Kenneth Grahame)
