Monday Artday - Theme " Beatrix Potter" my Tribute to her

Hi Everyone...

I just had to participate in this week's Monday Artday. It's been ages and I needed to do something just for fun...

This week's theme is "Beatrix Potter" and I am always amazed at the wonderful books I read as a child that my son is reading now...this is why I am passionate about Children's books...and illustrating and creating wonderful things that will be around for years to come....

I just love PIGS!


Have a wonderful day!

Hugs
Diana

Oh, be still my children's librarian's heart. A tribute to Beatrix Potter that so captures her love for her animals and the wonderful way she used them in her books. I can't wait to watch the movie about her again. Did you see it? Did you love it? It made me want to read more about her.

h Diana, this is soo loveley!
it really touched my heart!
When I was pregnant from Lars I made his room with Peter Rabbit. My mother sewed curtains and bedsheet etc. And Imade a lamp with Jeremy Fisher and painted just about anything with it. So it brings back wonderful memories to me.
Love your illustration with Peter and the pigs!
Thanks for making my heart leap with joy here so far away from home!
