Mr. Groundhog tries to give his Groundhog Day duties away. He does not want to be blamed for six more weeks of winter anymore. He asks his friends to take on the responsibilities, but they are not interested. Instead, one by one his friends show him how he is perfectly suited to the role. As the day progresses, Mr. Groundhog finds a way to enjoy his special day. Watercolors, and at times acrylic paints, are built up in layers followed with colored pencils, which add texture to the painting.
