Painting Process: MOUSIES!

Let’s go on an adventure! A rambling adventure with much back and forth and uhmmming and aahhhing and frustrations and joys! An adventure in painting!


As the proud owner of three wee little blank canvases and mother to a child with two wee little pet mice, I decided hey! Why not paint the furry little creatures! What a delightful idea!


The idea began as sketches. Those sketches were then transferred onto tracing paper and fleshed out. Those fleshed out sketches ventured forth to the canvas for placement…

But hark! A problem! These sketches are not looking great. No matter how I shift and twist and merge and push and pull, I am just not happy with their placement. It takes me a while, but I finally figure it out. The mice are too small on the canvas. They must be bigger! Bolder! MORE!

Yes! Yes! To the Tracing paper with ye!

And, with magic and witchery, to the canvas!

And now paint my lovelies! PAINT!

Neener screeech eekk urrr… We apologize for the loss of transmission. Please be assured that “stuff” happened and, several hours later, a completed painting emerged.

Thank-you for joining us on this journey. We hope that you had a pleasant experience and look forward to having you with us on our next adventure.

Farewell and pleasant wishes to all.

Look into my EYE!

Totally out of order, but here is the very last time lapse from my Dumpster Diving Fairy story. This time its a magpie peeking into their dumpster and finding an unwelcome guest.
