I have always wanted to do a painting based on this phrase. But I wanted my mouse to be rich in spirit as well as material goods so he is wearing his Sunday best. The steeple on the left side of the painting is an original print from the 1800s. I did a lot of research on old church doors and decided to combine various elements into one door.
Here's step one. I have textured the background and then did a layout with pencil and adhered the steeple print to the watercolor paper, then sealing the print so it will never yellow.
