Illustration Friday: Plain AKA Squirrel Around!!!

I have no idea what the reason was, but I decided to play with some mixed media yesterday. This is what I came up with. A squirrel being pulled by a bee which is being lured by flowers. Also, I decided to add the words "Squirrel Around!" because that's basically all this was. It's just a strange collage of some very plain, ordinary subjects...so I guess that's why it will have to suffice for Illustration Friday this week too!

I love the squirrel (I think the wee nasty beasties are awfully cute, even when they are raiding my birdseed...) and when I read your post title, I thought you were making a play on words, as in "play-in" (=pla-in = plain) AKA squirrelin around.

Does that make any sense at all? :-)

yeah, makes plenty of sense!! Never thought of it that way, but I like it!
