Turnip Love by ursulav Turnip Love by ursulav
I did this piece over a year ago, just a quick little watercolor of a mouse and his beloved turnip, to fill out space for a show at a coffee shop. A friend of mine bought it, and what with one thing and another, I never uploaded it, until I tripped over it on my hard drive while trying to clear up space.

Not the most complex of images, but I do rather like the mouse's expression.

This is SO cute! It makes me think of John Pinette (comedian)- if you haven't seen his bit on turnips you don't know what you're missing! *lol*

I will find you. I will ship you the ten pound and follow it. From there I will take a detour. Visit some Starbucks. Drink loads of caffeine.
Grrr... that is so bad. How bad do you feel? I mean, your probaly living in New York with your dad, drawing turnips and mouses and little boats swirling around in the artic circle with ... oh those cute little marshmellows falling all around and the faint strains of classical music floating on the wind.
Im losing track. What convinced you to draw a mouse in the fiendish company of a turnip. There probaly plotting right now about spreading AIDs and causing cancer in the elderly. Don't you think the Third World has enough problems? And you go draw A MOUSE .... WITH A TURNIP! gosh and golly mackers.

ooh, how cute :D

You know, that mouse really reminds me of a book I had when I was little, it was about this baby mouse who was born in a field with his siblings, and it's about him growing up and facing all sorts of dangers you can expect to have hurled at you when you're in a big field being a mouse... And the illustrations are really well painted and bright and sort of happy-like in a way, and they really remind me of this painting!

Gotta find out what that book is named, and whether it's available in english... Will drop you a note if I find out :)

Aww. :heart:
If it's watercolour, how do you manage the slightly rough shading on the fruit of the turnip and it's leaves? It almost looks like wax resist, but I have a feeling it's not. Is the painting just alot bigger than it appears here?

Aw-awaaa--waaaa--awwww---so sweeet! I agree about the mouse's expression. ITs simple but it speaks a whole lot volumes of lovng affection.

Tho, I can't help but recall that pre-historic squirrel in the Ice Age movie with his pre-historic acorn, hehehe...
