Tell Me a Story

A blessed companion is a book, - a book that, fitly chosen, is a lifelong friend,... a book that, at a touch, pours its heart into our own. ~Douglas Jerrold


I created this illustration for my friend Lorissa and am completely in love with it. Lorissa has a print of In Our Hands and wanted a little blondie to match. So here she is!

I am happy to add a few limited prints in my shop in the 10 x 10 and 8 x 8 size. I am going to have to keep one for Gracie, though. She loves this picture as much as I do.

It has been a long time since I put together a mixed media collage... I really miss getting my fingers messy with paint and glue and vintage text. I love the text! It's from an old beat up and battered children's book from the early 1900s.


I may be a little biased... but I think they look really sweet together!

Enjoy!
