Cup leads Saucer by five whiskers!!

Artist's Notes: I've had this little pic tucked away since last January!! I don't know why it took me this long to post! :giggle:
---------------------------
Chipmunks: Purchased at Dreamstime, id#1748488, and [link]

[link]

Cup, saucer, snow - my own. (Interesting side note. I had this idea for the chipmunks last winter. I tried working with pre-existing photographs of teacups and saucers, but nothing was really working. Then I had to laugh at myself... because all I had to do was take one of my own teacup sets, go out in the snow that was blanketing the whole yard, set the props on a little hill the way you see them in this manipulation - and snap my own stock of it. Even though I have a stock account, I sometimes forget how easy it is to set up my own scenes if I just take a bit of time. But it is so worth it in the end! )

This is beautiful!I'd like to ask permission to post this on my blog, cutethingsincups.tumblr.com/. I would, of course, include the link to your Deviant Art and the image you ask for in your CC terms of use, as well as listing it in the source section for Tumblr posts--I think it's important that creators get credit for their work. Thanks for considering my request!

This is so fun! :dance: I'm tickled by the concept of it since chipmunks can be so playful, but you never think about them in the winter. This is exactly the kind of gonzo thing they would do if they could!

I love the way it looks like a painted canvas. You do such awesome work :heart:

Just goes to show you if you want something done right, best to do it yourself!

Very adorable. Still, something about smiling chipmunks is just...unnerving to me rather than cute. It is an adorable piece though :D
