Not sure where the mammal-udder phase is coming from! Mixed media on paper, about 9 × 12 in.

My work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without planning, at least to begin. There may be meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying absurdity! Full Bio

    LOL about the “mammal-udder phase”. Love the nostrils and protective stance. Reminds me of a baby possum I had rescued that hissed at my camera click. What’s so cute, is it looks like your critter creature has baby teeth, something very benign. LOVE the color and texture and the entire piece.

  • Thanks, Frannie, that’s an interesting observation about the teeth looking like baby teeth!

    Haaaa!!! Perfect!!!! I love all of this one, including that stumpy tail and the bumps on her back. They remind me of some kind of carapace, like she’s evolving from some other creature and hasn’t entirely made the transition yet.

    Based on her…uh…udderage…she could have a BIG litter.
    So wonderful!!!!

  • :) Thanks, yes, a few people have commented on my various well endowed mammals, about what her babies might look like. I suspect not even thinking of showing them was in itself some kind of statement, more of that fascinating subconscious stuff that goes on during creation. After the fact, I like that the babies are left to the viewers imaginations.

    Oh! I forgot to ask: is she watercolor? Ink? I hope it’s OK to ask. The effect is really cool.

  • Of course it’s ok to ask! The only time I won’t answer what I used is if I can’t remember! It is watered down acrylic paint, ballpoint pens, probably a tiny bit of colored pencils, and also India ink.

    I think she is kind of cute! Worn out perhaps – I had a dog that looked a bit like that after having 10 puppies, except she had a big fluffy tail that was longer than her legs and when she was tired from all those puppies bouncing all over her, the tail would drag along the ground.

  • Thanks, Terri, I can just imagine that poor dog!
