hippo enthusiasts!




(hippo wall piece by Gary Rith)
You know how people are with their great obsessions, like me and piggies. WELL, I am not alone:
So this cute wall piece comes out of the kiln this am and then I get an email from somebody in Illinois telling me about the vast hippo conspiracy, I mean telling me about hippo collectors and how much they (might soon) love me. They have an international organization, and they have conferences. I am in the mood for hippo stuff, and shall make a number of this type of thing today.

I know I'm tired when I read "they have conferences" as "they have circumferences" ...which *does* make sense about a hippo!! Just NOT a hippo enthusiast.
After all, my oldest used to walk around singing "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas!" ...and Santa finally brought him a toy version.

Ooh, I hope you make some "standing" hippos.

your hippo is inspirational! Yesterday I saw a big pic of a hippo in the water, and I thought, yeah, that would make an interesting painting.

Okay, these really take the cake. Too *bleeping* *bleeping* cute! They remind me of my beloved stuffed blue hippo that I had as a child. His name was Hippy. I know; don't say it....

And then there was my second son whom we referred to when he was little and loved splashing in the bathtub so very much as "the great big "hissapotamus"!
