The Enchanted Meadow Series: The Munk

Time to start seeing these little angels in the garden. I know they are menaces. The last two years they have systmatically plucked every pear on our pear tree. We could see little pears go scurrying across the yard and then disappear into a whole in the ground. Despite their thieving ways, I do find them adorable.

This little guy is 2"x6" on Fabriano Artisco paper. I flat gilded the design with Rolco gold size and 23K Gold leaf.Still experimenting with Marie Angel fur techniques.So much to learn so little time.

I love this piece and how you've incorporated your beautiful calligraphy with the art of the "Munk" - the little guys also built a nest in the lining under the hood of my car. Cute as a button but menaces.

Lovely work, Heather! You've been very gentle in your portrayal. :) If it were a chippy from our yard, he'd be digging up the flower pots or chewing his way through the buried cable lines...!!

They are pests but they sure are cute!
