Steel Daffodils – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor and Sharpie

This is another sock monkey Eufaula building portrait.  Steel Daffodils is owned by Tammy & Helen, two of the sweetest ladies you ever want to meet.  It’s a wonderful store!  Our little sock monkey is enjoying one of their wonderful coffees.  🙂

I couldn’t find anything at all on H.T. Leslie.  This quote came from the book, Our Best Days.  A daily meditation book for adolescents, Our Best Days offers support on issues such as responsibility, family members, peer pressure, and relationships.

    I also have a new favorite. The idea of the sock monkey hanging out is awesome and what a neat character to carry through a series.

    Love this! Another favorite! I love the streetlights adding their color, the detail at the front and all the great windows. Another cute sock puppet monkey, so funny! Also – 8×10, another huge one! How long does an 8×10 take you? Mine are usually two evenings with mostly sketching the first day.
