I know these are perfectly ridiculous – but I have nothing to say for myself! (haha) It was fun. I was telling someone I couldn’t draw animals…and then I thought, but this is in the realm of “what if”, so it doesn’t matter if I don’t know exactly how an animal looks – these are imaginary people I might know!
It’s been cold (actually turned the heat back on) and rain, rain, rain here and I’m tired of it! We had two days of spring weather last week – nothing more predicted! Thought I would entertain myself with a few whimsical drawings for the fun of it.
“Simon Hausparrow, Rainy on Monday” Oil pastel, gouache, watercolor on journal page.
“Mlle Minou – Ready for the Dance” Oil pastel, gouache, watercolor on journal page.
“Bunny, a Girl With Questions” Oil pastel, gouache, watercolor on journal page.
Aw Simon Hausparrow, he’s gorgeous.
Love them! I want to go for a walk with them!
Thanks, Jan. I really did have a lot of fun with them!
Thanks, Ziggy, I really had fun with these imaginary people. I like Simon Hausparrow the best too!
I like them all, but I’m in love with Simon Hausparrow. I would so like to see them as characters in a childrens story, they look like they all have something very interesting to say.
Thanks, Tricia! I think they do look like characters in a story, and Simon would definitely be the star! Bunny looks a little scarey-haha. Thanks!
i *told* you you could draw anything!!! oh i LOVE these olivia!!! xoxo
I took your words to heart! and I just drew them without thinking too much whether they were factual – its okay if its imaginary, right?
Just when I thought you couldn’t possible get more creative than you already are, here you are, surprising me yet again. I love these, they are cute and witty, and beautifully done.
Thanks, Judee – I’ve been thinking about the personification of animals in art for a long time, especially in children’s literature. This was really fun and something different for me!
