Latest ACEO - Room for Two?

I had a lovely photo session with our new pet mice yesterday - they were so obliging. I loved this shot of one seeming to beckon to the other to join her in the crib, so couldn't resist drawing them. They really are the cutest animals. I watched one of them yesterday who was so busy for ages moving all the bedding material from different parts of their enclosure to this big mountain that she was creating. I would love to know what goes through their heads. We actually have one tan, one black and white and one pure white mouse, but I adjust the colours to suit the picture. This original ACEO is available to purchase from my ebay store. A wonderful day to all of you and hope no-one is close to the bushfires in LA :).

Another cute mice! Do you have this crib in their enclosure? Such a wonderful work!
Every time I go to our pet shop, I stop at the mice and rats cages. They are just so cute.

Thank you Akiko, - the little crib isn't in their enclosure, they just have the usual mousy toys, but I popped them in a large box yesterday with a few props and they had a ball exploring and climbing - it was fun to watch.

Truly adorable Karen! I just know your images are going to be in a childrens book someday. :)

Thank you Melody, I would love that so much, but in the mean time, I keep plugging away and learning and having a ball.
