Everything is Better With Mice: #39
My wonderful friend Chris (who has been featured on this blog before because I used Russian Powerpoint to introduce him at a reading) is moving to Pittsburgh (he has found a job there — yay!). When I asked him which of his favorite paintings he would like to have micefied, he suggested Claude Monet’s “Grainstacks (Sunset. Snow effect)” — the version displayed at Art Institute. I wasn’t sure at first, because I only micefy humans, but because it was Chris, I decided that I would have to come up with something.
Thus, lo and behold, the first of its kind: an appropriated painting with the introduced mouse character. There are actually two mice in this painting, and I assure you — once you see the second one, you won’t be able to unsee it even in the original.
Also, disclaimer: I know that the colors are way too bright and all wrong for Impressionism, but let’s remember that I can’t actually draw (and paint, for that matter). Mixing acrylics is so tricky when one does not know how. And to be totally honest, I love Russian Grandma mouse in this painting.
