As the Commissioner required this work in a hurry (for someone’s 50th birthday), I recommended a pencil jobby because I seem to be able to draw quicker than I can paint a picture! Apparently this little chap gets up to all sorts of mischief, and fortunately someone was there with a camera, just as he popped his head up out of the bushes. Commissioner’s words upon receipt: ‘That is absolutely wonderful…I am in awe.’

Poem:

The cutest eyes, mischievous glance
He runs around a merry dance
Now here, now there, he disappears
His owner squeals and shows her fears
But up he pops, from ‘neath the shrub
“Here I am, what’s all the hubbub?”
