PPF, Elections and featured Etsy shop!

Alright so once again it is Paint party friday!!! I have grown to really love these. So this is something I painted last night. I don't necessarily like it in itself as a finished product, but I think it's something I can redo to be awesome. (I honestly do not know where the mouse with the umbrella came from in my head. These things happen.) Also apologies for the bad picture, I am back to Ontario, the land of no scanner.

Don't forget to check out my etsy shop because I have some paintings up now! Yay!

Also with the upcoming elections here a few links. 
First off for some comedy a youtube video of Harper's debate glare that had me seriously laughing out loud. 

Secondly an interesting news article on the votes cast at University of Guelph Wednesday that the conservatives are trying to have nullified (cause they totally know the youth population is not voting for them) here

And lastly Shit Harper did! Which I think explains itself. 

Okay so clearly I am not a big fan of the Conservatives. I am trying to decide whether to vote NDP or Liberal. I think I have an issue that alot of people do, I prefer NDP but I feel voting Liberal will have more power to stop the Conservatives. After the debate Layton actually made a comment about that and said if everyone who wanted NDP voted NDP they'd have more power. I feel this is true, so I may just go NDP on this one. 

Anyways enough politics!!!! Lastly, I am featuring Squidbombed's Etsy shop because it has some awesome stuff! 



I love this figure drawing and alot of other ones on there but also check out the shop for some cool stickers and stuff!

  9. What a cute little mouse! I wonder where he came from. Perhaps she is smoking more than tobacco, LOL.

  10. Cute little mouse. This is one of those paintings you can look at for a long time and contemplate meanings, some of the artist and some of your own. Love it.

  12. Your art is great. I'm looking at the smoking girl and wondering what she is thinking as she looks at the mouse who is so darn cute with the umbrella. Of course I am afraid of mice, but not this one. Tee Hee. Happy PPF!!

  15. I love how the smoking girl is contemplating the little mouse. Very calmly, as if one sees a mouse floating by with an umbrella every day! Or...hmmm...maybe it's not a cigarette she is smoking lol!

  21. The little mouse is adorable. Is he repelled by the smoke or is she smoking something that that has created him and his whimsical voyage?

  26. This reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, the girl goes out for a smoke break and follows a floating mouse....the mouse kind of reminds me of Mary Poppins. Very fun piece!
