Sheep in Myth, Fish on Friday, and chickens under a tree
One silly cartoon & 2 more little tiny watercolors I found while getting ready for my folks to visit (oddly enough this one ended up being more thorough than usual because I knew I wasn't going to have much time immediately before they arrived). Sheep In Myth. I don't know what brought this one on, but I like it. In fact I was glad to find it this week, with all the other old arts and crafts and doodles I've been pulling out of the backs of closets I was actually thinking "I wonder where I lost Sheep In Myth, I may have to redo them". Well, here they are, wagging their assorted wooly, scaly, finny, or polka-dot-boxer-shorts-clad tails behind them. Click for detailliterary griffin. I think I had less money and more time when I was painting these little medallion thingies (and they are little, the griffin is 3.5" high, the navy dolphin is 2 and three-quarters inches and the chickens under the tree one is about 2 and a quarter) and I thought I was going to make notecards for gifts for friends or something. Never actually did any or anything but they were still fun to find in my cleaning. The sheep in myth was going to be part of the Silly Livestock Day I'd promised to get back to my normal frivolity - but then I had the horrible cooking accident to write about late late late last night, and I thought that was frivolity a-plenty. BTW, if the blogger version is too small to see the details, there's one up at flickr where you should be able to see larger versions. I gotta find some time to play with paint again one of these days. It's been such a busy summer!
