Song - Illustration Friday

When my daughter was younger, we used to sing all sorts of children's songs...one of which was "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." This was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Song."

If you can't remember the words...here you go!:

"The Itsy Bitsy Spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
So the Itsy Bitsy Spider climbed up the spout again."

I always wondered what was it with that spider now he looks rather befuddled himself. Very cute.

How absolutely adorable! You should illustrate the whole song - this is really great! I love your textures, color choices, composition, everything! Really nice TX! So sorry I somehow missed your illustration for simple - really nice too! You're doing great work girl - keep it up. And thanks for your continued kindness to me sister- I appreciate it so very much!!
