Giraffes got Game



It's funny how in the world of arts and crafts there's always a hot animal du jour. For a while it was foxes, then pugs and now apparently it is giraffes. So what a thrill it was to see that I was having a huge surge of hits in my Etsy shop. When I traced where they were coming from I saw that my giraffe pillow was included in a sassy little list called 27 Things You Need If You Love Giraffes. So that was fab. This design can be purchased here also.

This week I have been thinking about snow and robins.



The ones we have in the UK are tiny little things and the one's in US are great big strapping lads but they are all cute.






So I did this one called 'Rockin Robins' of a gang of robins chattering in a tree.




Then I did 'Robins in the Snow' where the little birds are all puffed up against the elements.


Linking up with Paint Party Friday!

  5. Your cushion is gorgeous, love both giraffes and the way you have left a lot of white space.
    The two robins look so different, I wonder why they have the same name. Your robin paintings are tremendous, I do like the splashy effect.

  11. I love robins, big fat ones here in the US. US birds and critters are lot bigger than the counterparts in rest of the world. Abundance of food, I guess.

    Congrats on being featured. Giraffes are sweet. Your robin paintings are lovely.
