Mixed media, 9 x 12 This was one of a series of Elemental Mice. Earth was tough. I wanted him to be DOING something. Air and Water can just swirl around being swirly, and Fire is just kind've aggressive, but my gut feeling is that Earth needs to work for a living. Earth has stuff to be doing. Earth is busy. Earth is solid and responsible and works hard. Earth is reliable. Earth is the designated driver of the elements and will always come over and feed the cat when you're out of town. So I cut down on the froofy adornments, much as I love a good froofy adornment, and gave him pockets to put seeds in and a trowel to dig with, and set him to work planting seeds in a rocky and somewhat barren landscape.
