3'rd Annual Peeps Challenge!



"Pod Peep-L!" 10.5" x 8" Watercolor by Pablo



"Hope Springs Eternal" 6"x6" Watercolor by Chris Beck



Well well well, I swore off painting peeps this year but when I was looking at chocolate, er, I mean fruits and veggies at the store, I heard them calling me and lured me into yet another challenge painting and I imediately pushed. . I mean asked my dear friend Chris Beck to accept the challenge. :0)


So, did you ever see that movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"? I didn't but I know all about it from another movie that I absolutely love. . "Big Business" where Lily Tomlin and Bette Middler are twins switched at birth. The moment they find out they see their twins, Bette Middler shouts out "It's Pod People!" apparently, she believes that aliens have cloned them in a "pod" and that's what gave me the idea for my peeps. . . . those bunz are still trying to take over the peep world!

My blog is doing all sorts of crazy things today so I haven't been able to link Chris's Blog here. . .so please check her blog out by clicking her name that you'll find on the list of blogs to the right. I'll try to get this resolved soon.

Hey, fellow Peeps fanatic!! Love your painting and thanks for another fun challenge!!

If it's any consolation, my blog is being weird too -- different problem, but something is definitely not working over at blogger central.

Two sure signs of spring - your Peeps Challenge paintings! Both are so colorful and fun and creative :) And, yes, Blogger is doing some odd things...

LOVE the pod peep-l! Inspired and makes me chuckle. Those little eggs with the feet are so cute and love the beaks on the rabbits.

Inside your head must be a fun place to be if you can create amazing pieces like this.

These are just wonderful and always make me smile! You both have minds that must go out to lunch and discuss just how crazy you can get! ha! They are terrific!
