Theory

Rhonda thought that, in theory, she should be able to cross the river using the stepping-stones.

P.S.... As observed in the comment by my sister, Vivienne, I got the idea for this from a visit to Royal Zambezi Lodge, in Zambia, where we were lucky enough to spend a holiday. This photo of the hippos there is currently my wallpaper on my desktop, and was the inspiration for this illustration!

If she´s just fast enough it might work.
Nice picture!

Strong and beautifully rendered illustration! Nothing like a strong woman to make theory, fact!

Nice storytelling with a nice image! Good luck, Rhonda...

Very fun idea! Besides, it looks like she could wrestle one of those things and win! Buff!

I haven't been here in a while and had the pleasure of catching up with Rhonda's activities!! Those are lovely, Cath - and the sweeties a great birthday treat, without the calories! Oh those were the days when one cent could buy four Chappies bubblegums, with JOKES included in the wrappers!

She looks ready to take on the world! Maybe not the river...

These are funny! I saw some hippo's when I was in Kruger National Parc. Before that I did not know how dangerous they are. I also found the roadsigns with the hippo's on it very funny. Now I know why they are there, I can understand them. They should also place signs with baboons :-). Thank you for your comment on my blog. I paint sometimes too. Not only on fabric, but on paper too. It is a whole lot different than working with fabrics, but just as much fun.
