I am in Florida taking mom to a big ginormous family party Bar Mitzvah.  I spent last night at her house, tonight we drive north and stay in a fancy hotel, and then we come home on Sunday.  I'm hoping for rest in the middle of all this as I am tired.

But I am also driven, and that's silly. I was having fun with Peter and the Wolf, so kept drawing down here and a little painting too. I have no way to get this big sheet of paper home, and had no reference to the colors that I used in the original, his skin is a different color and probably his pants and hair also. But, with the wonder of Photoshop, I'm sure I can pull it all off in the end.

This is the part where he, Peter, catches the unsuspecting wolf by the tail.  The wolf is looking for the cat and the bird, who are in the tree. The cat looks rather Cheshire, and the wolf looks kind of friendly but oh well....

Adorable drawing. The wolf does look friendly.
Enjoy the family get-together. So nice that you could take your mom along.

Fun piece. I love how its addictive to you now. Why cant you just roll the paper up and take it home with you that way? Enjoy your time there.

Mazol tov to the bar mitzvah!
I love your drawing style. I'm sure I've told you this before!
The mix of color and black and white is very cool too!
Get some rest and have a lot of friend!!

Love the image - that wolf has no idea what is about to happen to him!

It seems Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are getting more elaborate each year. My father in law is having his second Bar Mitzvah (70 years after his first!) and my husband and I are having the party here - seems that even after all these years it's still a big deal - he's invited 130 people!!
