Blackberry Fairy with Pet Mouse
Original watercolor on Hot Press Arches
Mice can make wonderful pets. They are soft and furry and there are always plenty around. They tend to move around more at night: when fairies can’t sleep, mice will gladly keep them company. Mice are rarely picky eaters when it comes to dinner.
While mice cannot fly, they can carr more than a single fairy can on foot. Carrier baskets should be positioned as far away from the mouse’s mouth as possible. Otherwise, the mouse will gnaw off the straps.
Mice are also loving and playful and intelligent. They are excellent explorers. Although they are very helpful in finding and collecting berries, they tend to eat the berries before a fairy can get her hands on them.
