Description
A watercolour and charcoal illustration. The illustration is of a blonde-haired woman in a yellow dress, with black stripes, leaning back in a black blanket hammock that two birds, the moon and a star are holding up by its corners. The woman’s head is leaning back on a pillow and she is holding a book with a picture of a red house with the sun shining behind it. Sitting on the top corner of the book is a green frog wearing a yellow crown. At the feet of the lady reading is a group of animals listening to the story. There are four birds, a lizard, a snake and a mouse that is sitting on the head of the tallest bird. There are two mice at the bottom edge of the black blanket, one poking its head out and the other hanging off the edge. Above the storyteller and the animals are six yellow stars in a semi-circle. The first star on the left has a string tied to it attached to the blanket and the crescent moon on the right, just above the head of the storyteller, also has a string tied to it attaching to the blanket. There is a black charcoal line border around the image with a star with a blue background in each corner except the top left corner which is just blue with no star. Underneath the image is writing in pencil, in the bottom left corner, “a.p.”, the title in the centre, “telling them about once upon a time” and the artist signature and date in the bottom rhc, “patricia askren dec/76”.
