    Filled with fantasy and fun, Elisabeth. I love that the trees are laughing!! And these cute mushrooms with mustaches and polka dotted painter’s berets are adorable. I’m always impressed with your birds; and your bunnies and snakes take the cake! Wonderful. What brush do you like for tiniest details? A delightful translation of Veikko’s Autum!
