Hill 'O Beans by ursulav Hill 'O Beans by ursulav
More Con art!

I can always tell when it's time to get lunch, because food starts creeping into my art. I have no idea what's happening in this painting, but I kinda get the feeling there should be an angelic choir singing in the background, a sort of "Annunciation of the Lima Bean" moment, the kind of moment you get when somebody pulls Excalibur out of the stone.

Only with, er, lima beans.

Um.

Well, anyway.

Original sold at the con, but I do have prints! Drop a line!

I didn't get the idea with an angelic choir, actually. To me, it reminded me of the way my gerbils would triumphantly stick their food up to me when they picked it up, as if they were willing to share with me, because I was not eating at that particular moment.

Yes. It definitely looks like he has a human he wants to share his beans with.

I love the pose. I used to think there wasn't much you could do with animal anatomy but this works. =D

Very good on the little streaks of blue on the beans. Somehow that adds something to the beans.
