Woodland Update

Here are a few more images of the woodland creatures I’ve been working on the last few months. Many of these critters are fairly close to life size and all of them are local to Whidbey island. Which is fun. I’ve had a lot of help from local wildlife experts and the wonderful librarians at the Oak Harbor library. I feel so blessed to get to work with these people! We’ve set the install date for Nov. 11. I can’t wait to see how it all looks put together. I have a feeling it will be like the thrill of completing a rather large jigsaw puzzle.

Edward is pretty keen on the Eagle.
Mr. Mole here is one of the exception to the whole "life size" bit. I think I just got in the groove of drawing him and forgot to take measurements so he's about double his actual size...but I suppose that's okay. Seth (the husb.) argued that he could be from Narnia. This seems probable since he wears glasses and can read.

The library has scheduled a ribbon cutting / grand opening type event for December 2 at 4 p.m. It is open to the public.

Love! My favorite is the rabbit, but they are all amazing!

Moles should always be double actual size... they are so cute and terrifying at the same time.

I'm a sucker for the raccoon -- he is so cute!
