A little mouse discovers some hastily discarded Valentine roses lying on the counter and curls up on a soft leaf for his mid-afternoon nap.

This original aceo painting was done on Arches 140lb hot press watercolor paper in colored pencil and watercolor. A few coats of acrylic semi-gloss varnish have been applied for protection and I will be sending it in a plastic sleeve inside a clear ridged aceo holder.
