Donkey and Bird Fiesta and Tiny Mushroom Sloth

 The other day I told my fantastic group of Facebook likers that I was drawing creatures and asked which animal is the best. I got a lot of fantastic replies with some really awesome favorite animals. So many! I had a hard time choosing, but I picked the donkey and the sloth (one of my favorites, too!) Both are done in watercolor and ink.
Here is a traveling donkey and bird fiesta... They bring music and fiesta wherever they go! Is it just me, or does the bird in the Mexican poncho make you want to go to Disneyland?
And those are either really huge mushrooms or that's a teeny tiny sloth. I prefer thinking of him as very little...

In other news: WE RELEASED BABY BIRD THIS MORNING!!! We opened the cage and he flew high up and disappeared into a tree.  I am going to miss that feather ball. Feeding such a little warm, fluffy thing and watching him grow and progress was such a nice experience and I feel good knowing that I helped. I hope he lives a nice long and happy life out in the wild...

And I hope you all had a long and happy weekend :)

I love both painting but the sloth steals my heart. I will miss hearing about baby bird but I am so happy he's flying free and off on adventures. I bet he will come to see you from time to time.
