Whimsical Critters

Doesn't it feel good to make good on a promise....

Now, I don't make promises lightly, but, I have to admit....sometimes I don't get them met until long after most have forgotten I made the promise to begin with....haha!
Not this time :)

I promised you guys more art.
...and more art I have :)

 
For inspiration, I flipped through some of Maggie's nature magazines.  When I saw a creature that made me stop and pause, or grin to myself, I earmarked them. 
Elephants are one of those animals that draws me in.  Such interesting features, kind eyes and an overall silliness in their wrinkles.
 
This is entitled "Lady Grey"
Is that her favorite tea or her name? Hmmm....
 
I saw a raccoon in the pages, too, all fuzzy and sneaky.  I had to paint one! Here's my version.
 
 
I call him "The Star Thief"
 
 
They are each painted on 4 x 4 inch (10cm x 10cm) canvas panels and come with a cute little wood easel for displaying.
 
I have 2 more of these little panels left.  We'll have to see what animals catch my eye and imagination next....heehee!
 
I'm off to yoga now, but when I come back, I'm going to spend the afternoon visiting with all of you.  I feel like I'm just not in Blogland as much anymore....and I really miss seeing what has been keeping everyone busy!
 
Til later, Namaste :)

Absolute cuteness...especially Miss Gray...she has those kind eyes we all love.

I hope you find your blogging balance. It is hard to find it I think...painting/blogging/ viewing...but oh so fun.

The elephant is cute, but I love the raccoon! The 4x4 canvases are perfect; they make fun whimsical little paintings!

Elephants and racoons - both so lovely ... wonderful creations!

Fran Traina said...

I love your paintings and the canvas size looks so manageable. I ought to try, I'm usually painted on paper. Your work is terrific and I love Star Thief!
Thanks for your visit to my space!

They are both charming, Cam, but that raccoon--I'm pretty sure I've seen her hanging out in our backyard!

Well, we both make such different things, I'm not sure you'll be too excited about your parcel, but surely Little Miss Mini-Cam will find something she likes!
