SIGN - its going to be a harsh winter



that's what my Grandma said whenever you see squirrels collecting an unusually large amount of food. I can't find any scientific data on the web to back this claim up but here's a good site about using nature to predict the weather.

I've heard that too! I think your Grandma is right. And this illustration so delightfully portrays the notion!

Nancy Bea said...

Haha! Cute and funny! And my grandma always said the same as your grandma. Who's gonna argue with the grandmas? It must be true!

Linda this is my favourite! I think it's true and clever and I love the colours of the leaves and the posture of the squirrel, it's all wonderful, love it!!!

Makes sense. This little squirrel has style, a shopping cart, LOL. Really like the look of this piece, splashes of color from falling leaves and the overall choices from your palette. Unique and fun!

Hi Linda, love your free style, and the autumnal palette is perfect! Thanks for dropping by!

What a cute illustration! Love how the little guy is pushing the cart of his "groceries". I like the falling leaves and acorns, too. Wonderful job!

Glad to see that jogging squirrel back again. Hope he makes sure to return the cart... Don't want it cluttering up the park.
Way funny. Thought of the animals/signs aspect, but couldn't come up with as good an idea as you have.

studio lolo said...

This really makes me smile! I love how you have the squirrel pushing the cart from a comfortable position instead of stretching him to reach the handle! Hilarious! And yes Grandma, you're right :)
