Illustration Friday-- Muddy

You might think this is a birthday card, but, in fact, it is a diagram of muddy treats:
A.  Mississippi Mud Pie
B.  Muddy River ( iced coffee made with brandy and cream!)
C.  Muddy Coffee (aka: Cowboy Coffee or Army Coffee-- don't drink all the way to the bottom--blech)

Ooops! I forgot a Mudslide!  :)

  7. See, this is what is so great about illustration friday. To see everyone's take on the topic is always so much fun. I would have never thought of associating food with mud. Nicely done!

  12. These are really cute! I love your colors.

  13. Ooh...Krista! What a wondeful composition..and such a great concept for muddy...I must try one of those Muddy Rivers...as that sounds a bit decadent and delicious right now. I am a coffee AND of course, TEA girl, so this piece just warms my heart...I love chocolate and warm drinks. I agree with Karen above..your watercolor wash is awesome!

    And yes, I just wanted to say that I do paint pretty tinily. Is that a word? The little face I painted is 1/2" high..I paint small often..do you?

    Have a wonderful rest of this weekend!!
