Creative Tuesdays - Art



"C'est une œuvre d'art, oui," Madeline? asked Gustav

"It's a work of art, yes?"  Gustav asked Madeline....
Madeline wasn't sure if he meant his artwork or their love....
Madeline is my little mouse character
...she loves the ARTS and Gustav.

....this is my work of ART entry for
Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday.
Come play along, it's so much fun
see you there....

Hee hee! I love your French Mice, could do with a translation though!! :0/ (clearly i didn't pay too much attention in French class!)
Your mermaid is gorgeous too.... what a way to be transported... another thing to put on my wishlist :0)
Thankyou so much for your comment, it seems many of us have shared a similar journey (I ended up majoring in Psychology!)...great to see you following your heart and doing your art too! Huge hugs :)x

how cute!
I all those little curls - the mustache, the tails, the table leg ends, and her artsy outfit with the brushes in her pocket

I also like your header art which could also be for Creative Tuesday

Oui, oui Madeline!!!! I had to Google the translation too and then when I checked back in to comment voila, there is was...and then I wondered if it had been there all along. I love these little, inspired creatures of yours.
