Paul and Babe in Watercolor!

Here in Bemidji we will be celebrating 75 years of having Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox as our city mascots! I wanted to paint them but thought I would paint them differently than usually they are seen. I used salt and pepper shakers and made it appear that they are on Lake Bemidji with their reflections in the water. Reflections of the stars and moon are there as well! A fish has jumped in the water and they are gazing up into the sky at the Big Dipper where the North Star is located. This was a fun painting for the anniversary and hope it will do well this summer! I made cards and giclees of it.

I am thinking of calling it Afternoon Delight..but not sure on that and open to suggestions!!
