Winslow & Jeffrey

I mentioned earlier that I was going to attempt a painting a month. The month is almost over and here is my painting. It's Winslow and his pal Jeffrey the Rat and they are sending a birthday greeting to a friend of mine. They'll probably end up being needle felted groupies.
This is my initial sketch. There are tombstones on the cake and 3 torches for candles. There is one bat balloon and an eyeball in the glass. Jeffrey was added in the finished painting. The painting is 4" x 5.5" and I think the smallest I've done to date. Done in acrylic and I had fun. We'll see what I come up with next month.
