Another Sunrise

The child cuddled the fox until the Sun rose.

The fox’s paw was now healed, after the child had released it from a trap in a nearby field, and bathed it in a magical light, the colour of the Moon, from her own hands.

When the Sun was fully in the sky, the child released the fox, who playfully licked the child’s cheek before bouncing off through the flowers in the clearing.

The fox looked back just in time to see the child rise into the sky, her wings now outstretched.

Archangel Ariel smiled as the fox rejoined her cubs.

The Bag Lady (Cheryl) recently asked me to write something based on the above picture, so this is my response, in a hundred words.

I Want My Mummy!

(Or Bottoms Up, part two!)

Here we are inside the hole in the tree that we caught the little dormouse scuttering into the other day. But… ah… he seems to be all alone…

Another whimsical dormouse digital doodle, just for fun. No dormouses were harmed, emotionally or otherwise, for this post. This dormouse is an excellent actor. You should see his Hamlet.

Bottoms Up!

Partly inspired by a recent post by Cobs, and partly inspired by nature, I have digitally painted a whimsical dormouse scurrying into a hole in a tree. I say ‘painted’, but I merely spread a few dashes of colour here and there to create a tree effect. And a hole effect. And a dormouse effect.

Very rough, and very quick… but that’s dormouses for you. (Apart from the roughness, that is… they are so adorably cute!)
