Lil' Rams and a Jello Mold

I finished my lil' Rams Scrimmage piece. i did it in watercolor on velum Bristol. I used toned inks for many of the edges, but didn't go overboard. The piece is for my daughter's marching band fund raiser.

ALSO... the Jello mold idea came to me while meeting my friends Aaron and Cathy for an impromptu beer. I was thinking of a Santa Claus Jello Mold, with dwarfs/elves/gnomes surrounding him... then the idea of something suspended in the Jello was the next logical step... but what? A MISSING SPOON!

oh,... and the elf that was last seen mixing the Jello.

I think this may be my next-year's Christmas Card.... go real over board with a fully set banquet table, and an elf in amber.

too much.
