Water Mouse by *ursulav " I just love her art and this is just one of her amazing, phantasmal artworks. I love the angle of the mouse how she seems to be playing with the little fish, the rich jewelry the tribal signs on the head and the beautiful texture of the background."

Water Mouse

Still not a series. Nope. No series here. Pure coincidence. Can quit any time I want. Anybody seeing a series in the fact that there are now three elemental mousies is simply being paranoid and inventing mental connections where none exist.

*adjust tinfoil hat*

I don't actually like water. I mean, I shower regularly, and I drink it, and I know that I am some ungodly high percentage water myself, but I am Not A Fan. I fear drowning. I swim poorly. I have inhaled a good solid lungful of seawater, and the projectile vomiting that follows such a happy occurance is firmly etched in my memory. And I grew up in Oregon. The water there is cold and icy and doesn't like you, and harbors pointy rocks and sulky jellyfish. Things in the ocean are very beautiful, but I have no desire to join them. I will cheerfully get up at dawn to go tidepooling, but I will wear boots and jeans to do it.

I do like koi, though. My stepmother had a spectacular collection of koi, and they were gorgeous little fishies. And smart, insomuch as one can apply the term to a brightly colored unprocessed fishstick. She insisted they had personalities. I cannot naysay this, as I had never spent a prolonged period of time with a koi. For all I know, they do.

Anyway, enough rambling! Mixed media, 9 x 12, still feelin' Art Nouveau-y, as evidenced by the weedy bits in the background. Original for sale, prints available (even jumbo!) drop a line or visit [link] for details.

A very elegant style and wonderful use of colours.
Today I discovered the source of the weird and wonderful "Biting Pear of Salamanca" and I have become a fan of your work. 
Thank you or sharing! Love

I feel the same way about water. I'd never go swimming unless the boat I was traveling on was sinking. And even then I'd stop to think about it first.
