Creatures are the Original Settlers on the land. They desire only to be respected and made precious in their silent quest for peace.
This week I honor all creatures, adding just a bit of humor and color to their coats. May these images bring a smile to your Face and tender thoughts to your Soul.
Animals have rights that we need to Honor. They cannot speak, yet their language is universal.
We know the sound of pain or fear or joy...we just have to listen.
All images below were completed this past week. I started some of them months ago, and let them gestate until the paper spoke to me and guided me to the final images.
Below you can see the Piggly Wiggly and how it started, as well as the Monkey Moments first incarnation that changed direction and image. The original images are available as prints and products at Jessel Miller Products
Animals know but never tell.
Animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language and tell stories. Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains asleep.
Piggly Wiggly started as a hippo. I added the word vulnerable because research said these creatures are becoming extinct. I painted over this image and did the pig instead yet feel I need to do a Hippo at another time.
