oh Jess, I love this piece. She is amazing and the theme is even better. I love books and even the birds seem to be interested in it.

As long as they don't start pecking at her!

Jess said...

Oh thankyou! I thought this drawing is open to interpretation, the birds could be part of the story she's reading, they could be friendly or they could be menacing depending on your perception of it. :)x

Lovely, Jess! I love how the birds are menacing about her...especially that one on the bottom right! :)

Lisa Graham Art said...

She is so sweet and her striped dress makes me think of Little House on the Prairie. Have you ever seen that old TV series? Nice work Jess!

Jess said...

Thankyou all so much!
Yes Lisa I did see that series many years ago, maybe her 'sugar and spice' collar came from that memory? ;)
