Holstein Frog by ursulav Holstein Frog by ursulav
I woke in the night t'other day, clutched the edge of the bed, and said "The time has come...for frog udders."*

This started life as a watercolor, but once I was done, while it wasn't bad, I decided to try it in the more graphical style of my earlier "Kachina Frog" painting, and was more pleased. Was the world ready for cowbell-wearin' Holstein frogs? I dunno. Probably not.

*I know frogs are amphibians. I know that udders are mammalian. I also know that SOMEBODY's gonna e-mail me to point out this basic fact of biology on the assumption that I don't have the brains the gods gave an avacado, and somehow believe that frog milk flows like wine. This is a feeble effort to forestall that.

I guess this could be interpreted as a play on the common name of the"Milk frog" ;) (Trachycephalus resinifictrix)

Great expression, lively style, original concept. Cheerful and fun! And points up a general truth in humor, that you can't go wrong in putting an udder in some unexpected place. Well done!

I concur that it is about damn time a frog grew an udder. Froggie babies gotta drink milk out of something when they're eating pancakes for breakfast dangit!

Lol totally love it!

Much love
Nickie

I believe I will have to forestall eating while perusing your gallery as well, since my keyboard doesn't respond well to being sprayed with Milano Cookie crumbs.

*snort* "brains the Gods gave an avacado" "frog milk flows like wine" *snort*
