View Full Version : Thing1 & Thing 2

Ok - I was at a loss for a name to these guys, but it just came to me today - Thing1 & Thing2 (yes, I know they are sugar gliders - lol) 8x10 oil on canvas board. They just made me giggle every time I saw them! At the very least, maybe Dr. Seuss would be proud :wink2: Comments and critiques most welcome. God bless! XO

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

Fedetony, they are sugar gliders. A co-worker has three of them and they are the cutest little creatures I've ever had the pleasure of holding . . . and they make such an interesting noise. I just had to paint a pair, so I found a reference and got them out of my system, although that backfired a bit as I'm more in love with them now than when I started! (I guess that's how it's SUPPOSED to work :) ).

Cute little guys.
Great realistic detail, almost looks like a photograph! Nice painting!

Sheryl, when I first picked up a paintbrush, I was so intent on copying the photograph . . . since then, I've grown more comfortable with the look and feel of paint and your phrase 'almost looks like a photograph' made me smile and affirmed me in a special way. Thanks. :)
