Thirty Little Collages - Chipmunk
This group of postings show the finished 6" x 6" collages and also the text that I wrote about the animal and included in the collage.
The ground was covered with fallen leaves, partially obscuring the tiny creatures whose quick movements made the ground itself seem alive. Here a head poked up and peered around. There a tail flicked as its owner made a dash for a place that seemed safer. Everywhere the leaves rustled with the constant movements of a myriad of chipmunks hunting their nutty prey.
The sun shone through those leaves that remained on the trees, casting mottled shadows on the ground. Now and then a bit of white fur on a chipmunk stripe passed through the filtered sunlight, setting up a startling flash,like a tiny lightning flash among the dark leaves.
