Geese and Kangaroos? Huh? 5″ x 7″ Watercolor and Sharpie
Of course you have figured out that this was painted from 2 different
photos by Mary Y (from Australia) at WetCanvas. I don’t even know how
big a kangaroo would be if he was standing next to (and chatting away
with) a goose. It’s possible he is much larger than this… or smaller.

“Don’t look down. Look up! The steeper the climb, the more
important it is to laugh. People say the bubble is popping, it’s bad
out there, and it’s getting worse. Everyone’s getting the rug ripped out
from under them, one man said. No matter how bad it gets, we can still
find happiness. There’s some for each of us. We may need to
redefine what happiness is before we can find it but when we do, we
discover it’s been there all along. Another word for happiness is
Peace. It’s been looking for us.”
I like that. She sounds like a smart lady.
