2nd (annual?) Peeps challenge...
[...drumroll here...] Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to present the results of our second Peeps challenge! A big thanks to Pablo for instigating the challenge this time around. You can read about his fun and zany painting on his blog. Jelaine had some technical problems, but finally joined the fun. Go to her blog for more info.
Spring peepers were a familiar part of life in Wisconsin -- their high-pitched peeps were ubiquitous in the marshy and wooded areas as winter waned and spring sprung! As I was brainstorming my challenge painting, I glanced over at my little collection of vintage tin toys and this little froggy jumped right out!! My search for the perfect piece of background fabric yielded this silly froggy medley -- can't you almost hear them peeping??
