Hattie and Humphrey

Happy Monday.  I hope all the mommies out there had a special weekend....
Today I am hopping in quickly to introduce you to....

"Hattie and Humphrey"

These two pals love to talk & quarrel over politics. 
By day, Hattie is a newspaper columnist and Humphrey is her fact checker. 
By night they crochet, knit and spin yarn to make sweaters for orphaned orangutans...
Ah two souls after my own heart.


This is a mixed media & I had so much fun with it. 
Give me some coloured pencils and I know I can work some magic but paints...epp...I still get nervous BUT
I am learning to accept my meager painting skills & to still enjoy the process of painting...
I mean I am not after a Mona Lisa creation after all, ha ha. 
This sweetie is acrylic paint and ink on a papered and painted background.
(Prints will be available soon)

See you Wednesday for a special giveaway.

Great piece. A nice diversion from your current style. It's you, but it's new. Can't wait to see more of these. A story line of them would look awsome in a children's book.
