It has been a busy few days and will continue to be a busy weekend. We have had family in and are planning for a party tomorrow for my oldest sons birthday. Unfortunately, the weather has been predicted as cold and rainy... not a good forecast for a planned outdoor party for a bunch of kids. However, I am taking my mind off that, by posting to my wonderful, little blog. =) I decided to include my "Tortoise" to the site. It is an older piece, but one that I am still very proud of. He was created using pen & ink and luma dyes.
In continuing with my animal fun facts - Do you know the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? A tortoise, like the illustration above, is a land-dwelling reptile that eats low lying shrubs and grasses. Tortoises don't have webbed feet and live in climates that are hot and dry. Turtles, spend most of their lives in water and usually have webbed feet for swimming. Turtles can be found in both the ocean, and fresh water.
Ok, I'm feeling better now, and am off to frost cupcakes and create a race track birthday cake. Have a great weekend and thanks for the visit.
