The Culprit!

Maisie, the masked Googler

So...I think I found the inspiration behind the comic in my last post. Lo and behold...I stepped into my studio this morning to find Maisie already at work. Up on the screen were Google images of bunnies....alongside another window with Google maps open! I've got to start keeping a closer eye on this girl.

On to some artsy of my older paintings from 2004, "Which Came First" is featured as Art of the Day on the EBSQ site today. I used to participate in many of their themed juried shows...and this was one of them with the theme of "Chickens". I think I would enjoy doing that again one of these days soon. Being given a theme and seeing what you and everyone else comes up with is such an enjoyable experience. Kinda forces you out of your comfort zone.

Have a good art day! Keep an eye on your bunny chasing mutts out there!

Love the eggs! The shot of Maisie is great too! Very funny. Keep her away from your credit cards.

Maisie is great! I loved your painting with the high stepping chicken and those eggs are wonderfully rendered. Aren't you going to participate in the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge Linda?

Maisie made me laugh ~ bunnies and maps, huh? She must be planning a road trip! It's good to see here again ~ it's been awhile since I last visited.

The Hi-Stepper painting is beautiful ~ I love the way you've painted the eggs in the hay.
