The Pockets, all except for the Mr, are romping around in the garden. This gives Pip time to observe the Pocket family dynamics. It apprears that Mrs. Pocket does not want to be bothered with the children. (Hint: she has two nurses to help her with them.) In her defense, there are SEVEN little Pockets tumbling around the garden! Not including Herbert, whom I assume is the eldest. Mrs. Pocket awkwardly bounces the baby on her lap briefly and then sends them all off to nap.
Mr. Pocket finally comes out of the house, looking as perplexed and befuddled as Mrs. Pocket. I think I’d be in a dazed stupor also, if I had 8 children!
I am posting another gelli print I did last week during this online class taught by Carla Sonheim:
There are 8 shapes to represent each of the Pocket children tumbling about their lovely garden by the river. I really like the textures on this one!
