Allegory of Justice

Honestly, my greatest accomplishment today was rousting out a completely uncontrollable perennial sunflower that was flopping everywhere and generally being a very poor neighbor in the garden.

Then there’s this…

Digital. Thingy. Ferrets.

Some day, I will figure out that cut paper look that I want to do somehow. Probably. Mind you, once you start doing nonsensical allegorical paintings, it’s hard to know when to stop. “The Puffin Of Organization Astride The Dragon Of Excessive Craft Supplies.” “Excellence As A Young Hamster Maiden Nibbled By The Turtles Of Indolence.” You get the idea.

Prints available as always.

Why stop?? All of those sound AWESOME.

btw, welcome home!

You're a terribly strange person, Ursula.

No, she's a wonderfully strange person!

All of these wonderful allegories should be posted at random points in the corridors of boring bureaucratic organisations to show that there is indeed another dimension in which imagination and originality flourish. They are the polar opposite of grey dullness, and therefore to be highlighted and broadcast wherever available.

Incidentally, I note that Justice as ferret appears to be stabbing the sun. Is this an allegory for rooting out sunflowers?

The Dragon of Excessive Craft Supplies needs to be depicted upon a hoard of glitter and rhinestones.

. . . I'm now imagining the DECS statted up as a D&D monster.. complete with hot-melt-glue breath.

You must have known that as soon as you posted that picture, someone would post this youtube clip...



Well, maybe people expected the Kill the World' clip, but then again, I'm not that nice.

You know that we all need to see the Hamster Maiden.

Very, very nice.

Mind you: Most ducks aren't about mute despair. More like quacking annoyance, most days. (Today, for instance. Quack.)

“The Puffin Of Organization Astride The Dragon Of Excessive Craft Supplies.”

I will absolutely buy this. Absolutely.

I would totally buy BOTH of those! By all means, keep going with them!

I'm reminded of the 'Platypus of Doom and Other Nihilists' by Arthur Bryon Cover.

Awesome piece.

I don't think I say often enough just how very happy your posts make me. "Excellence as a Young Hamster Maiden" fills me with much the same glee that a small child asking me to paint David Bowie on her face did yesterday.

Now if only I can run across a small child asking me to paint something of yours at one of my street fair gigs...

Which David Bowie? WE MUST KNOW!!!

And if your street fair gigs take you to Upstate New York, I and my son will ask for Dragonbreath characters!

That duck looks very Princess Tutu to me.
I love it!

I so very much want you to do a set of the Major Arcana.
