2 Pews

I have a very soft spot for white rats and enjoy painting them. This watercolor is intended as a gift.

Here is the happy winner of the painting at the 2008 NE Ratfest!

Rat Angels for the Nibblefest Art Contest

NFAC is a monthly contest on eBay that begins on the 20th and ends on the 27th. Each month has a theme. and there are no restrictions on medium or type of art. Bidding must begin a 99 cents, and the person with the most bids wins a small prize. This month's theme is Angels & Demons, so I thought I'd recycle some of my rat angels. Do an eBay search for NFAC after the 20th to see many wonderful works of art that are very affordable.

The Whitechapel Rat & the Bunch of Grapes

I am liking the idea of doing a series of Ripper themed rat aceos. I hope my friend Bev doesn't mind that I transported her Pickle back to the foggy streets of the East End.

This drawing references the most famous contemporary print of a tarring & feathering. Hanging on the gallows is a barrel of tar and a bag of feathers, as in that print.

The Whitechapel Rat & Jack the Ripper.

Latest ACEO. I had thought of the idea for last month's NFAC contest themed "Into the Mist" but didn't have time to do it.
