On the edge of the forest lived a squirrel named Earl.
He had a sister, whose name was Pearl.
The two of them loved to dance and twirl,
especially when visiting their cousin, Cheryl.
They sometimes ate ice cream cones of chocolate and vanilla swirl
that were tipped on the top with a frosty curl.
But more often they caught an acorn or berry that was hurled
on a branch or the trunk of a tree that was burled.
Their tails were fluffy but they kept them at a furl
in case they would have to run and scutter and whirl.
Which was often the case when a dog named Merle
chased them back to the edge of their world.

The background blue on this painting was done using my new Rembrandt Series 3 Artist Quality Cerulean Blue Watercolor Paint I WON for FREE from Charlie at Doodlewash for #WorldWatercolorMonth. Thanks Charlie! I’ll be trying more of the wonderful colors soon.
Earl the Squirrel was inspired by my loyal TheCreativeLifeinBetween.com blog-following friends, Ellen and Benjamin.
