New Beasts!

Yes, it's true.
Mischief:

This Beast appeared with a particularly mischievous expression! What to do with that? I decided that that was this Beast's strength. Sometimes, one can become too careful, too insular, too mundane. Mischief is a reminder to do the unexpected, take a risk and enjoy some mischief!

I have a serious infatuation with Russian Folk Art, and the colors of this Beast were inspired by Dymkovo Toys.

Puddle:


Look at that expression! If that doesn't make you giggle, I dunno...! This is Puddle, and this being is not a frog, nor is a duck...it is a Beast. More than willing to hang out in the rain, muck or even hot sun, this Beast offers silliness and support through the most unpleasant of circumstances.

The paintng on this Beast is soft and painterly.

Sing!

Is this Beast singing or about to kiss? Hmmm... what do you think? Sing! lives in a world of depth and sincerity which is required of one who feels deep joy and wonder, and is able to transform that into song.

The colors I used for Sing! were inspired by the Winter Palace. The architecture and colors of St. Petersburgh turn me inside out.
