This is so lovely, and the characters are darling!
Ah yes! Music calms the savage beast, Even if he's not so savagy :0) . Monsieur is so talented. I love following his exploits. Very nice the way you put such depth into your work. I just love stopping by Shirley and I'm so glad you stopped by. Bon Jur :)
Bonjour Shirley! This is scene right out of a wonderful t.v. presentation indeed!!! I just love the views and composition of the whole page. It's wonderful and soft and very inviting! Great work Shirley. Wishing you wonderful Holiday and looking forward to hearing from you soon. Take care!

You know I just love Monsieur Olivet! And he certainly have the most adorable friends!
very nice and tender illo.
This is so sweet! I especially love the little bunnies.
Tender is right, it came to mind before I even read the previous comment. I can hear the music. You are an amazing artist, Shirley!
Really nice scene! I also like the disparity in character sizes.
Beautiful piece! I love that big ol' bear!
Oh my, Shirley. This illustration is sooo very beautiful. I love the scene and Monsieur Olivet is a most prestigious serenading balladeer.I love your work, Ms. Shirley. It's always such a pleasure to drop by your blog.
love love love. great work! lovely style drawing.
A darling and sweet song. Thank you.
Beautiful! Nice work Shirley. I love the depth of this piece. The emotion it evokes is just perfect!
Oh, Shirley! This is exactly what I want to do. I want to close my eyes and be lulled into dreams by the wee Monsieur's music. This is beyond enchanting! And I must tell you how much I LOOOOOOOOVE your Wild Things paintings. That is one of my favorite books, for sure, and seeing your adorable little Max was magical. Thank you for your wonderful comment. Absolutely, honey. Buy the plot next to mine on de Nile! We'll talk with our string-can phones. :)
Ah Shirley, Your illustrations are classic. They remind me of the earlier chicldren's books which I love so much. You know I still buy children's books for the ilustrations alone? Happy Thanksgiving!
Ohhh! this is so sweet and wonderful!Watching this scene I feel grateful for being allowed to share this magic moment.
Childlike innocence. Simplicity. That's what i see in your art. ~Silver
This is so sweet! I look forward to seeing what Monsieur will be doing next!
<3 So lovely, Shirley!
Sweet! Love how sensitive the big bear can be :)
great effect with watercolor!!! amazing, it makes me feel nostalgia, when I had many books with colorfull pictures and staying for hours just lookin them.
beautiful painting, Shirley, a really nice mood and palette. Awesome! Thanks for feedback on my IF entry, "The Road to Snail Island!" (why is that picture "worrisome"? The drums? The weapons?!). I think I've loved the idea of giant snails every since reading Dr. Doolittle as a young lad ...
A sophisticated variant on "The Teddy Bear's Picnic".
Your illustrations are always so great to look at - the colorwork, the scenery... it's all perfect!
I want to be there with them! Your scenes are so magical and serene. This is not only beautiful, but full of warmth and characterization. Hope you're having a lovely holiday!
Oh my cute word, this is so lovely, the little mouse choir is adorable and Berenger Bear's sweet face says it all the musical melodies must be blissful.
What a view! C'est tres belle :)
Feedback! You rock! Thanks for your words...
