Happy Birthday Winnie the Pooh! Well, actually it is the author of Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne's birthday today, making it National Winnie the Pooh Day!
Here is a little study that I did of Winnie the Pooh that is part of a larger painting I am working on:) This is an oil painting done on cardboard. I chose to put in the background some of my favorite books from my own bookshelf. These are books that my children and I have read together in bed so they hold fond memories for us. Inkspell, Despereaux, Stuart Little, The Hobbit and of course Winnie the Pooh!
