New Digital Painting: "Promise of Spring..."

Hello there. Just posting some cheer for you here, as thought you might find these crocuses uplifting, and their promise of spring...

Haven't finished posting this everywhere it might eventually be, but you can find it on all sorts of items at Redbubble, including these cute artboard prints...

Hope these give you some cheer-more soon.

Wildflower Quote and Celandine Painting

Hello there.

Hope you're doing well. The idea in this new painting spoke of freedom to me, and seemed to go with the bright, wild beauty of celandine flowers.

At some time soon, I'll know whether or what to do further with this, but thought you might like to see it "hot off the press," as it were.

Be as  happy as you can-more soon.

P.S. Update, Jan 23rd 2021. In the end, this quote has ended up being ready to buy on cards, gifts, and even a cushion, at Redbubble.

New Digital Painting: Vibrant Pink Plants

Hello there. Hope you're doing well.

It's been a long time since there was a new digital painting here. In honesty, am not even sure what (if anything) I'll end up, "doing" with this. It is, after all, quite a quick sketch in Krita, compared to normal.

But I do know that it's cheering me up on a grey day. And so am posting it, as it may do the same for you too.

More very soon.

New Whimsical Design: "Fairies Live Here"

 Well, that took a bit longer than I thought...

At the end of last week, the actual artwork for this design was almost finished. But it's taken some time to turn it into a proper collection at Zazzle.

It's worth it, though.  You can leave these items as you are, and have an ultimate-in-whimsy garden sign, throw pillow, mug, doormat and more. Or you can personalise all the text to say whatever you want alongside the art showing a fairy in a flower... I'm guessing that people's names will be popular, or "Welcome,". But I could be wrong. 

What text would you add in this design?

In any event, enjoy these designs, which you can see as a collection here.

More very soon.

Free Leaf Clip Art Printable: Green Leaves Pattern

It's time for another freebie, in this case an A4 printable pattern of green spring/ summer leaves. It would make a great background or piece of wrapping or craft paper. Or you're welcome to use just some of it as clip art. You can use it any way you like in line with my angel policy.

Green Leaves available in an A4 Printable Pattern

To grab this, just right-click, click or tap (depending on your device) and save, and you're good to go. (IF you take a picture of anything you make, I'd love to see it (maybe on the BoundingSquirrel Facebook Page?) and would also do what I can to promote anything you make which incorporates it too.

If you're more of a fabric person, the design is also available on many different kinds of fabric, from Zazzle. The image below shows the design on a fat quarter...

But however you use this design, have fun with bringing a touch of spring and summer into your life, whatever the season when you're reading this. 

And I'll leave you with a little teaser that there's another project almost finished too that I think you'll like. But it's not quite finished, so will leave that to post at the start of next week. (or the next post, if you're reading this later).

Take care and see you then!

Art Journal: Attempting Something New

 Let's all be gentle with each other today, for a variety of reasons.

But in the art context, am attempting to be both brave and gentle by posting a thought have been having for days...but illustrated for the first time ever (for me) with an attempt at a watercolour landscape.

Am posting here in the interests of transparency and "keeping it real". And hoping that the words at least will feel inspiring for someone, as they did for me.

More very soon-take care.

New "Vegan Penguin," Cartoon


Cartoon in which one penguin tries to be vegan...

Hello there. It's a new year, but in the general weirdness and Januaryness, thought you might like something to raise a smile. (This is a watermarked image, so please share this too, if you know someone who needs to grin a bit as well).

This cartoon came from watching a really cute documentary about penguins of the world. As for the vegan spin...who knows?)

Take good care of yourself-more soon.
