Blind Date by ursulav Blind Date by ursulav
You know, for once I think the title is all the explanation needed...

Mixed media, mostly acrylic and colored pencil, on illo board, 9 x 15. Still foolin' with the technique. The frog's expression is what makes it for me, I think.

Original is SOLD! Prints available for $10 plus shipping! Also send a note, or visit [link]

I about fell out of my chair at the frog's hopeful expression XD!

Nature's way of pairing can be a little bit skewed for some folks. The poor squirrel doesn't know what to think.

I've been there in the frog's place a few times before my fiance stepped in. It's so cutely done and it makes me smile. The words "before you meet the handsome prince, you've gotta kiss a lot of frogs!" spring to mind.

That frog makes this piece simply fave-worthy. Such an eager and adorable expression!

The expressions are everything XD. I think you're one of the few artists who draw animals with human expressions that I actually like.

If she dumps him I'm totally going to kick her ass.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. ! :winner: congrats! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure (and ALSO, to show off people who I think are undeniably talented in their own genre of art, regardless of their #'s of fav's or pageviews. I like what I like ). Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists. If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! xoxo Sandi :heart:
