Pythoness Parthena Parker!!

Twas the night before Halloween and Pythoness Parthena Parker was weaving her web for the Queen.... Whil Harry Le Lapin de Clapier waited, however, what was unforeseen was that the Pythoness couldn't for the life of her achieve the that elusive hue of asparagus bean green!  Both had quite legitimate fears that come tomorrow morn, the Queen would shout, "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!"

Twas, the night before Halloween and Pythoness Parthena Parker was working hard weaving her web for the Queen….
While, Harry Le Lapin de Clapier waited and looked on, however, what was unfortunate and quite unforeseen,
was that the Pythoness couldn’t for the life of her achieve that elusive hue of asparagus bean green!
Both had legitimate fears that come tomorrow morn, the Queen would shout, “OFF WITH THEIR FLIGHTYFEATHERNBRAINED GOURDS!”

And so, on that foggy and frosty Hallow’s eve, somewhere deep in the forest, they both drank a lot, and I do mean A LOT of caffeine. Watercolor & Quip by Anastasia Traina ~ 2012~
