Nosy Neighbors, acrylic/collage, 6 x 6
Elizabeth W. Seaver
You'd think that these two would have a close relationship of a different kind, more in the "I'm-scared-you-might-eat-me/Are-you-poisonous?" vein. But all of that worldly worry is pushed aside when there is good gossip to be shared.
"Did you hear that Missy Muskrat got so mad at Arabella Arachnid that she tore her best web and scared way all her dinner?" whispered Camilla in her softest caterpillar voice, not in the least interested in bringing the attention of the rampaging muskrat down on herself.
"No!" gasped Darsey, "What had Arabella done to her?"
"Well! Missy found out that Arabella had been using one of the back tunnels of Missy's burrow to lay her eggs...."
...and so on in the timeless way of back fence chat.
There is no end of delicious "dish" right under the sprouts and shoots in our own gardens, if we but take the time to look and listen.

Should you be able, this moment in time between neighbors may be viewed up close at LibertyTown Arts Workshop in October. The show is about the world in tiny view, no larger than 6 x 6 x 6.
Camilla Caterpillar and Darsey Dove would be so honored if you stopped by.
Speaking of being honored....I'm so pleased to welcome my new followers. Thank you so much for joining this riotous ride and for your many comments which keep me fueled.
