IF - Celebrate



So, just what do little mice in Holland do to celebrate? They put on their clogs and dance, of course! (Click to view larger).


As I was painting the mice for Illustration Friday I remembered that years ago, when I was living in Holland, I had painted these little Dutch characters in traditional costume on wooden eggs!

  1. But of course! Oh, how wonderful. What an adorable mouse family. I think they deserve their own storybook.

    And I LOVE your eggs! I have a small collection of decorated eggs. Yours are just lovely.

  4. Great humanization of the mice...really like the faces on these in both keeping them naturalistic but still showing expression without getting all Disney...
