Hello Little Hedgehog

I have no idea how I decided to create a hedgehog in this artwork.  It just needed to be there.  I think he looks quite friendly.  It might be nice to meet up with this little fellow in the garden.  But, then again it would probably give me quite a start.  

At any rate,  this piece of art was done in cut paper.  It measures 11 x 16 and is made with mostly papers I have hand painted.  In the foreground are lines to indicate grass.  That sort of design is made form lino printing with ink and then painting over in greens and yellow.  There is also a bit of scrapbook paper and some old stamps used in this piece as well.
