Staying at Home 8 – Humphrey

This is Humphrey. He is taking part in the local teddy bear hunt. Actually I am not sure that anyone else is playing but he has always been a very optimistic bear, ever since he was abandoned in a parking lot 60 years ago and was confident that he would find a home somewhere (he did).
I am not sure why he is wearing two sweaters, one made by my mother and another by me thirty years later, but it is still a little chilly around here, so maybe it is just as well.

Pen and ink and watercolour.
Too much back-light for me to show this with the subject, so you will just have to take my word for it. The four hibiscus plants live in this window all winter. At least one of them is 20 years old. I prune the roots as well as the tops every couple of years, so they are effectively bonsaied. It won’t be long now before I can put them out on my porch.
