Whimsical Watercolors

Groundhog in the Labyrinth : A Whimsical Watercolor

We live in the suburbs, close to downtown, but we have a surprising amount of wildlife that visits our backyard. I have told you about our wild bunny who comes and meditates in our flower garden.

The other day, I also mentioned our groundhog who visits our backyard about once a month, rain or shine, all throughout the year and just trots around and checks out the place–probably to see what’s new. You can see pictures of him and Mr. Bunny in real life here.

I also mentioned the stone labyrinth I built in our back yard the other day. You can see pictures of that here.

Anyhow, the other day we looked out our back window and, I kid you not, there was Mr. Groundhog. In our stone labyrinth. So, of course I had to do a watercolor painting of him. And this painting isn’t quite accurate, as he was at the edge of the labyrinth rather than at the beginning of it. But I do like to think we are providing a contemplative space for both people and wildlife.

  1. Lovely! And I like your stone labyrinth, especially that you used stones from your own garden, rather than buying it in. 🙂
