On the road to Oz by JonBeanHastings On the road to Oz by JonBeanHastings
Dorothy and her traveling companions on the yellow brick road to the emerald city of OZ. (Note: in the original story, Dorothy's slippers are silver, not ruby.)

Commissioned for my friend's new baby. She wanted classic children's book heroines to inspire her new daughter, Zoe Calamity Snell (yes, that's her real name.)

Watercolor on watercolor paper.

it's so cute, and the silver shoes are much better than the ruby ones. Don't you think so?

I even painted them with silver ink so they'd pop right off the page.
