'Banana Slug'- Mouse/Banana
4"H x 8"L x 2"W
Edition of 200

One day I realized that all of my work was relatively serious in subject. Because I am not very serious by nature, I thought it would be fun to reflect on a little whimsy. My Auntie Charlene was very influential in my art, she herself being so creative that it boggled my mind. She delighted in creating little characters in clay. One of my favorite was a dopey little owl in a nightshirt and night cap, called 'Night Owl'. He was holding his little toothbrush and there was even a squirt of toothpaste on it. The mice are for you, Auntie.
