sleeping mice!

it all started a few days ago.
 i found this leaf on my morning walk.
a sign that fall is here.
(one of my favourite seasons!)

inspiration takes hold in interesting and surprising ways...
the idea of sweet little sleeping mice using this beautiful
maple leaf as their blanket popped into my head.
(the leaf is also so Canadian!)

and so the idea took hold and i sketched, illustrated,
took a scenic picture of the leaf in my garden 
and finally brought it all together in photoshop.
(under the leaf these little mice are wearing tiny little socks
to keep their feet warm! after all fall can be chilly!)

happy fall!
