I’ve been doing some squirrel drawings lately, experimenting with mixing pen-and-ink with watercolor and pastels. Here are two of my faves so far:
When the squirrel posed for this, I told him to think about the funniest thing that ever happened to him. I asked him later what it was, but he was laughing so hard I couldn’t understand what he was saying.
Then I asked him to think of something sad.
But he looked so sad that I started to feel sad, too, and I said, “Okay, that’s all for today, thanks, scamper off and eat some nuts.” And off he went.
There’s a little story that will go with the pictures, but I’m still working on it. Maybe in the meantime, you can imagine one of your own.
