Food Chain #1

I feel this one. And then I don't. So I won't call it finished but it's the fifth I needed for a deadline later this month. Some paint is called for and maybe more. Being locked into a 12"x12" box chaps my ass something wicked. There are three or four other pieces that were supposed to be a part of this group but I accidentally on purpose let the dimensions get away from the rules. Someone said I should use these critters to illustrate a children's book. Looks like I'll have to write this one myself.

They look like great playmates out to see what mischief they can get into! Write the book... I have four grandkids who would love it!

I recall watching you slap a snake in the mouth so it would spit out a poor mama bird's egg. A children's book is an absolute MUST!

Love the creatures. Your editor can work on taming you.

"Chaps your ass?" Now that's what I call 'voice'!
