One of my favorite pastimes is reading. When I was younger my Mother used to call me a Book Owl because I would rather sit and read a book than do my chores. I therefore thought I would paint a few images that I could use for bookmarks as I love to slip a bookmark into all the Birthday Cards that I send to family and friends. I chose the theme for these bookmarks of Australian animals enjoying the pleasure of reading.
This bookmark series has just been added to ArtiSueBee shop on Etsy – .ArtiSueBee
Pete the Pelican: I love watching these fellows. They always look so intelligent and I’m sure they would enjoy a good read as much as I do!
Ollie the Owl: with his thick reading glasses and intense gaze, he definitely looks like a ’Book Owl’.
Jackie, the kookaburra: I love listening to their laugh. They always look so cheeky and I’m sure they would enjoy a good laugh when reading a Joke Book.
Joey the Kangaroo: Joey certainly loves his Mother reading him a bedtime story.
Kenny the Koala: He certainly looks like he is enjoying his favorite story in the branches of a shady gum tree.
Blackie: My magnificent Black Cockatoo is enjoying reading a good yarn.
Eccy the Echidna: Such a prickly little fellow but this means he is left in peace when he reads with no one bothering him.
I hope you like them.
