Horace and Henry are a pair of characters that have inspired me to write a children’s book- or picture book. These are the earliest images.
Horace & Henry's Family Portrait
Horace & Henry's Family Portrait 30x40x2 Acrylic and collaged watercolor papers on Wood Panel
Horace and Henry pose for a family portrait in front of their home. They hold Grubly, their sweet little grub pet, whom they discovered wandering around their garden one day. Grubly wears a red sweater and rests in Horace’s arms.
This work of art was made using acrylic paint and collaged watercolor papers. Each of the stones in the house is painted and then cut from arches paper, and attached to the surface of the wood panel. So many details, so many textures!
