Your hand with the flowers in white is stunningly gorgeous and your insects are so playful and fun. I missed you and won’t stay away so long next time. Reply Elsita :) on May 4, 2011 at 7:38 am Thanks a lot Peggy! So great to see you 🙂 Reply Claudia Liliana/rasamalai on May 4, 2011 at 8:14 am Muy lindas! Se me antoja la fresa! (en serio, tengo sed!) Reply Donna on May 4, 2011 at 9:00 am Is this a play on life? The lady ant planning away and working for the future? Sometimes it seems like that is the way real life is. I love her and the strawberry looks so juicy and sweet! Yum, Yum. Reply Janet M on May 4, 2011 at 9:24 am I love the expressive looks on the faces of the ant and the grasshopper. Everything in this book is so adorable. Reply Betty on May 4, 2011 at 10:09 am Hi, Elsita. I am so happy to see the ant represented! I always say (joke really) I was an ant in my past life because all this life I’ve been shlepping things around–laundry (huge Hefties full), groceries (8 at a time on the bus to bring home for Thanksgiving feasting!), furniture, boxes of documents and files at work, etc., etc. I always try to be careful not to step on ants! Thanks for everything and another bright morning! Best wishes from Chicago 🙂 Reply Betty on May 4, 2011 at 10:12 am Oh and one more thing the strawberry reminds me of–carrying my son on my back (he was 3 years old and heavy even tho cute as a strawberry!). Good luck on the book– I’m excited to have your wonderful art to stare at on paper! Reply Jamie on May 4, 2011 at 10:31 am I have a great affinity for bugs so I think these two charming characters are my favorite so far. The itty-bitty flowers they each have are perfect embellishments. You are such an inspiration! Reply elizabeth on May 4, 2011 at 11:54 am Oh you are so funny. For a second I thought something was really wrong with you, LOL. She is really drop gorgeous and the strawberry is a delight, wish I could take a bite. Have fun you, I’ll see you soon. Reply diana on May 4, 2011 at 12:43 pm I just came back from your link to Wikipedia. Aren’t ants unbelievable creatures?! I must say this little Miss Hormiga still manages to look adorable (with a fresh flower behind her feeler!)while working so hard. Can’t wait to see the Ant and the Grasshopper together in their “theater”! Reply Shelley Noble on May 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm Oh! So sweeeet! You talent is amazing. Reply Colleen (bcharmer) on May 4, 2011 at 10:00 pm I love your aunt and that she has a flower behind her ear. Sometimes I think that if I spend a few extra minutes to “spruce myself up” that it makes my work seem less hard. Maybe your ant feels this way, too! Reply Gina Purlia Johnson on May 4, 2011 at 11:02 pm I love her body language, “I can carry this enormous strawberry and look oh so cute and stylish while doing so”. This is what she is saying to me! I love the little hormigita!<3 Reply emilie on May 5, 2011 at 1:42 am So love the boots! 🙂 Reply Miami lasik surgery on May 5, 2011 at 3:17 am This is a stylish hormigita, she has a flower behind her ear, she is strong carrying that huge strawberry, this is how women should be. La Fontaine was my favorite author during school period, it was always a pleasure and fun reading his fables. Reply Margaret Oomen on May 5, 2011 at 4:17 am fern would love to help her carry that giant strawberry and he promises not to nibble on it along the way Reply wendy on May 7, 2011 at 4:01 pm this is too stinkin cute. You’ve outdone yourself. Reply Coach Outlet on May 11, 2011 at 10:46 pm See how the sky was black during the day, see how long is the night, and at dawn. Reply hollister clothing on May 12, 2011 at 11:04 pm .Nice one, there is actually some good points on this blog some of my readers may find this useful, I must send a link, many thanks. Reply hollister uk on May 13, 2011 at 12:22 am I believe tears at a funeral are all those the one who died never got to cry while alive. We finish cleansing their soul when we cry. Reply פריצת דיסק on October 24, 2011 at 4:59 am Beautiful post! The painting say something important about their work. It’s amazing. Thanks for sharing this one.
