Children's picture book watercolor illustration for
Miz Fannie Mae's Fine New Easter Hat
This watercolor painting as the illustration for Miz Fannie Mae's Fine New Easter Hat, a children's picture book written by Melissa Milich, published by Little, Brown and Company in 1997.
In this story there was a loving father, mother, a girl and her brothers and sisters, a beautiful easter hat with flowers and four bird eggs.
We saw the look on Mama's face as soon as we got home. But it wasn't the happy look we had been expecting. She had been working on the kitchen, making cakes for Easter, and so she washed up while we stood there with the new hat, but she dried off her hands shlowly before she came over to see. "Don't you like it?" I asked. I think she did like it.
