ALL NEW Once Upon a Time illustrations...



The Pig...the Lion, the Puppy dog and the pet Bunny...
I've been staying up late trying to get these finished to give you all more choice in the MAY GIVEAWAY which some of you have entered...if you haven't it's not too late, you have 5 more days...just scroll down and enter.
And a reminder...you must choose your 4 favourites....some of you only chose 1.
I am giving 4 Limited Edition prints away!!
How these for came about:
I've had requests for the Pig...it's amazing how many people I have come across who collect Pigs!
The Lion was also a request...I do love the Lion, he looks like he could roam the jungle all night and protect his little friend from everything and anything.
The dog is up there with my favourites...it's funny how some animals just fit the page right and the composition just works...and the colours work together in harmony.Those blues and golds seem to be in sync as well.
The Bunny was on my list of "to do's" after the Easter Bunny was critiqued by many...they were right to what they said...that the Easter Bunny would only appeal to many at Easter...friends are great, as are family for really telling you how it is or how it should be.
I really do appreciate every one's comments.
So far my most popular animals have been all three Bears(Panda,Polar and Brown Bear),the horse with the princess,the bird and the Elephants.
What animals do you think would be popular?
Have a wonderful weekend.

The are gorgeous along with all the others! How about a hedgehog? I think whoever you place on his back, whether it be boy or girl will need well padded pants! :-)

OOh these are great as usual!

I personally like squirrels and frogs, I also think dolphins are massively popular and are unicorns!

Have you done a zebra yet? That was my childhood dream, to own a zebra just like in the old Swiss Family Robinson movie. Can I also suggest one with a child of a different race? My nephew is a beautiful shade of brown and if I got him one, I would choose a darker skinned boy on the back of something fierce.

These are so gorgeous! No matter what animal you paint, they are all so sweet! I love, love, love the lion! And that puppy! I've linked to your give away on my blog (although I was hesitating as I don't want more competition to win...;)). Hugs, Silke
