Artist's Description

Original Art in Mixed Media by Anita Inverarity

Watercolour, Coloured Pencils & Ink on Watercolour Paper. I did this way back at college for my Children’s Illustration course in the mid 80’s

Inspired by the poem by Oliver Herford….
The Elf and the Dormouse
Under a toadstool crept a wee Elf,
Out of the rain to shelter himself.
Under the toadstool, sound asleep,
Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap.
Trembled the wee Elf, frightened and yet
Fearing to fly away lest he get wet.
To the next shelter—maybe a mile!
Sudden the wee Elf smiled a wee smile.
Tugged till the toadstool toppled in two.
Holding it over him, gaily he flew.
Soon he was safe home, dry as could be.
Soon woke the Dormouse—"Good gracious me!
“Where is my toadstool?” loud he lamented.
—And that’s how umbrellas first were invented
