Mercedes McDonald’s Little Cowboy and Blocks!

Mercedes McDonald has illustrated many many children’s books over the years. She has a strong
penchant for children revolving around ecological, ethnic and animal themes. This piece, done in pastels, conjures up a favorite childhood theme of cowboys and alphabet blocks. The sense of playfulness and innocence of children could not be better displayed! I recall these symbols.
Do you?
