I like the subtle colors. And I am with you...mice...eeek! I practically want to jump up on a chair holding the hem of my skirt! :-) Well, the hem of my jeans legs,really.

Gee - could this be any cuter? They look like they're having a little conversation about something (maybe planning how they're going to break and enter the house?). I think little mice are cute when they're outside, but they freak me out when they get into the house. Of course, it freaks me out even more when my cat gets one and plays with it in the bedroom in the middle of the night. Ugh:< The colors make me think of a blustery March day...watery with a touch of mildness in the air. Did you have a warm day in NH today? It was gorgeous here in CT!

Very nice, I really like the loose lines and the colors, a very simple but effective palette. I love the window too!

Oh, I like this watercolour, Susan. I especially like the softness of the mice and the watercolour effect of the white siding on the house.

Love the shadows in this. My cat Jakey spied one of these last week...it didn't live to tell the tale.
