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.

This watercolor illustration in this children's book is my second version. I did the first version of the painting with much larger figures and less background. It looked very good as a single painting, however it did not work well in the story flow of the book. So that I decided to re-do this piece for the book. I put lots of thinking in this piece, because this is the time that the father had the most fun to try on every hat, and the little girl was so worry that her father will spend all the money on the hat that is "ugly".
