In the bright white light of a spring morning Amanda mouse is trying on her new straw hat.  She wants to look her best at the Easter Parade this year.

I used colored pencil to draw out the composition and then switched to acrylic paint.  I wanted to keep my colors soft and light for a pastel spring feeling.
