He is so sweet, I feel for him 😦
You are amazing, I am so very in love with this little one.
Aww… It looks really scared *.*
Oh, poor little thing, you’ve made him look so vulnerable. I just want to pick him up and cuddle him…
I really feel for these low on the food chain creatures. Thanks Jen.
Oh my gosh! This poor wrecked little guy! Such character.
Again an excellent outline, dear Elena.
I really like how you portrayed mouse,… little scared!
Thank you for sharing.
Enjoy a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Stefania! 🙂
The ears and the eyes tell us everything we need to know.
really terrific Elena.. shows such emotion.. glad you rescued her .. I’m sure it’s a her 😉
Could be. Didn’t stop to check, but could very well be:) Thanks Helen.
Thanks for such a moving demonstration of respect and compassion for all living beings.
Everyone deserves a second chance! Well done for rescuing the mouse! 🙂
You have captured it’s vulnerable side beautifully.
Thank you Kait;)
Is he eating something or trying to keep his teeth from chattering?
Chattering, I think.
Now if they all looked like that…I think I could begin to like them!
I love this little guy so much! Such expression! Wonderful painting.
You’re welcome!! 🙂
Elena you just gave mice another dimension all you need now is to paint the next one and let them dance the dance for life…. just saved.. let me know when you ready I’ll play the music.. looking great and few more can even be on the catwalk (I must select another word this one is wrong choice at the moment, sorry), still looking great mouse and thanks for leting him to see another day. It is amazing to see how it sit calm for you to paint it too… we call it trust.
Thanks so much Doron! I’ll work on that celebrating mouse today:)
Now you put your mind to it.. it is going to be and have some celebration to remember!
Beautiful and adorable! And those hands again! 😀
Yeah, I like the hands of little creatures:) Thank you Cindy!
Love your watercolor artworks…they whisper their stories loud…amazing sound they produce. Beautiful.
How nice to say. Thanks so much Bojan!
Sweet, helpless creature, I’m pleased you rescued it. 🙂 Captured perfectly.
Thanks so much Steven:)
Adorable, and beautifully colored.
Poor quivering little wreck . . . .
Yes, he was. Thanks Patti
I talked with a coworker today about how I have fed a mouse in my apartment — on a couple of occasions. He shrunk back, gasped — not everyone finds these critters cute, or worthy! Yours is adorable! Nice.
So glad to hear about your affection for these disrespected creatures:) Lucky little gourmet rodent! Thanks Sandee.
Aw, the little fella looks worn out. At least he’s alive, though. Lovely painting, Elena!
That he is:) Thank you Richard!
Oh, I’m so glad you rescued him… what a darling creature! That “darling” bit is obviously your doing!! 🙂
He was pretty cute;) Thanks ever so much Marina!
I really love the ears!! I guess this is because they give the exact fear expression you were looking for! Fantastic Elena, like always! 🙂
Very much appreciated Maria:)
Thanks so much Millie:)
I want to console him ,emotions,mood so realistic…great job as always!
Aw, thank you:)
He’s awfully cute for what my wife regards as a nasty pest!
They can be for sure, but so can we:) Thanks!
its a little story in under 140 characters! lol. Love the illustration, as always
If you’d care to write it, you are most welcome:) Thanks very much.
I can almost appreciate mice looking at this sweet painting!
I’m glad. Thanks:)
so sweet and cute, adorable!
Thank you Annerose:)
Oh cutness- I love the floppy ear! I’m sure the little guy is quite thankful for your help.
I like to think so:) Thank you Jess!
WOW! It is great story. Wonderful painting…. Thank you dear Elena, love, nia
Thank you Nia!
I know it´s a terrible experience for the mouse, but you made out such a cute drawing! The ear coming down gives him so much tenderness..!
Oh, thank you Palmira:)
In emotional level, it’s a tricky choice isn’t it. Mice got their life style.
Cats got their own. We got our criteria.
Once mice made a nest in a piled-up equipment. Made their bedding
with teared papers. Chewed elec’cables, covering everywhere with
their piss etc etc. —– I needed to splash / wash the equipment with
hot water (yes, we can !) then with spirit, —– and dry with hair-drier.
ETC etc —– It’s nothing but the trouble to live with them.
Yes, on the face, as they are small, hence looks cute —– though,
I wouldn’t pretend to be a nice tender person.
I have my hygiene standard before play a hypocrite.
(Local council put rat-poisons everywhere and “Sanitized” whole area !)
Yoshi, I think that anything in numbers can be a real problem, humans included:), but these little guys just melt my heart.
I know that is exactly the problem. They are so cute.
In the same time they looks so tasty to a cat ! 🙂
And the Mice really want to have their own sweet
love nest painted by thick gluey piss.
Everybody has their own honest feeling. Nothing wrong
though, it’s a problem to others. 😀 😀
Aww Elena…he’s such a sweet little fella and yes, looks scared!!
I thought at first the mouse was supposed to be the terror 🙂 They’re very sneaky, y’know, those mice…
That they are:)
This is great Elena, time of the year for these lovely little visitors. Your guy here has a bit of a cute appeal to him – personality plus. Oh man, did I really say that?
I like the “personality plus” Mary:) Thank you!
Ohhh! Vulnerability and fear for sure. Also, incredibly sweet.
Beautiful piece, Elena.
Many thanks Karen:)
Awwww. So sad. If I were a mouse I’d freak out at the sight of a cat coming at me! Lovely watercolor!
Thanks ever so much:)
You have captured the emotion perfectly…. poor little thing. I think mice are cute and precious too… we might be in the minority on that one. 🙂
At least there are two of us:) Thanks much!
Our cat keeps bringing them indoors too, dead or alive… 😉
I know. They can’t help themselves;)
