The Fairy Kingdom and the Palace Guard


The Fairy Kingdom


and the palace guard ;)


And a little 4" x 4" watercolor of a one-armed Little Red Riding Hood.  I copied it from a vintage children's book illustration for practice, and I was congratulating myself that she was at least recognizable as a human, and then I realized that I had only given her one arm! LOL!  So there's your comic relief for today :)

Happy weekend, friends!

Well, there ARE people with only one arm... so, you are illustrating the "all inclusive" children's book!

Her arm is by her side and back a little - just out of sight!x

such detailed photos, the mushrooms look good are they edible ones I wonder. The face on the painting is beautifully done Starr, not that the rest isn`t too, and you can always add another arm if you are not happy with the one.

I see Red's other arm, just peeking out from the edge of her cape in the direction her finger is pointing..... she must be indicating where to find the wonderful Fairy Kingdom!

Very nice mushroom and snail picture and I didn't notice the missing arm at all. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog and for following :)
