I've been busy making paintings featuring groups of whimsical characters! The hardest part has been figuring what animals to paint (I'm trying to come up with some new ones, besides the foxes and owls that I usually create). I am open to suggestions! I'm thinking maybe a squirrel?







Thanks for all the suggestions! I just finished this one and wanted to add it to the line up. Smiley

These are all gorgeous!  I love the first one!  Different types of birds may be fun to play around with.  Egrets, sparrows, cardinals...penguins!  Penguins are always adorable.

These are really adorable! Especially the rainy one, which reminds me of Sandra Boynton and sets off all sorts of happy childhood memories. Smiley

Your paintings are soooo adorable!!! I love them all, really. The hippo and the zebra makes me smile!

As for any suggestions: a giraffe? I love them. A leopard, maybe not the cutest, but a very interesting print! A peacock? Those are some that came to mind!

Thanks for sharing, as I said, I love your paintings!!  Cheesy
