Wildebeets at the Ford

By ursulav
A traveller across the Serenghetti, coming to a river crossing in the heat of the day, may well find themself captivated by one of nature's most magnificent sights. Roots held high, horns gleaming in the sun, leafy tails trailing in the water and red flanks glistening with sweat and dust, the vegetables pass in a small herd, crossing the river at the shallowest point. Largest of the vegelope family, capable of standing off a pride of onions, wildebeets at the ford.


Okay, okay, it was a quick piece, I had the idea this morning and wanted to get it down, so it's just a loose but entertaining bit 'o silliness in Painter 7, in the Weird Fruit family.

PRINTS AVAILABLE! We gots the standard 8.5 x 11 for $10, a jumbo limited edition for $45, and possibly an even bigger one, in a run of like 5, although we're still lookin' in to that and I'm not sure what the price would be. Send a note or drop a line, always glad to set that up.

You missed out on the best pun of all: CANTELOPES! XD

This is so cute, it is almost unbearably funny and sweet. Your imagination alone gets 5 stars any day, and the execution is top-notch, too.

This is so absurd and nonsensical, and I love it.
