country (ripple): sruble

The sea birds have set up a satellite location in the country while the Gulf oil spill is being cleaned up. Have you ever seen seagulls, pelicans and chickens all under one roof? Me neither, but here’s how I imagine it would look:

The chicken coop has a few visitors.
The prompt for Illustration Friday this week was “satellite,” and the prompt for the CBIG Blog this month was “country.” I decided to combine the two in a painting for the ripple blog (to help animals affected by the oil spill).

I love the rather surprised look on the chickens faces!

Love it, very clever! Love the pelican's pouch being used as playpen by the chicks!

This is adorable. I love the community of birds helping one another to find shelter. The art work being contributed to the Ripplesketches Blog is marvelous and the donations are going to a great cause.

Thank you Redheaded Stepchild, Vivien, Di and Ginger. I love being able to combine topics if I can. It's like a puzzle to figure out how they can all fit together in one picture.
