Have I mentioned lately how much I adore all of my lovely blog readers? I wish I could give each of you a heart-shaped blueberry pancake!
I'm so happy with the turnout of my latest giveaway. The winner this time around is Heidi, who blogs at My Hiding Place in Cyberspace. (Just a quick FYI: Heidi's blog does contain some mildly X-rated, or perhaps only W- or V-rated material, so take caution if your not-so-understanding employer is reading over your shoulder.) I really loved Heidi's comment:
"Wonderful illustration! The creatures of the ocean have long fascinated and horrified me. Cryptozoology cannot come up with creatures that are creepier than such wonders as the chimera, dana octopus squid, fangtooth, and ocean sunfish. I would sooner encounter Nessie than the cute tiny (5 inch) blue ringed octopus whose venom is so powerful it can kill a human (and no known antidote!)"
I couldn't agree more! Just when I think nature couldn't get any crazier, it does, which is why I love it so.
Thanks to all of you very much for playing along. And, as usual, be on the lookout for more giveaways in the not-too-distant future. (a.k.a.: As soon as I dig out my watercolors and paint a few more illustrations.)
