I couldn't put my hand in amongst this lot, could you?

Nope, no way. I'm very much like Indiana Jones when it comes to snakes. Great job, love the colours

Love your entry, looks like a lot of us have went with snakes for this weeks topic!

Vicki Smith said...

No, I really wouldn't want to put my hand in there, but they are truly lovely snakes anyway!

Bella Sinclair said...

Normally, no. I hate snakes. But these beauties? They're so colorful and pretty that I'd love to wrap them around my wrist for bracelets!

Nicola said...

I am always intrigued and amazed by your ability to make literally anything beautiful! And, when I look at the bigger version, I get a sense I am looking at an enchanting mandala.

Hey Nicky! I love this! Such a beautiful design in a design! Reminds me of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Alice in Wonderland! Great work!

Megan Coyle said...

Yikes, snakes creep me out, but your piece is so lovely - I like all the bright colors and patterns you used :) very fun to look at!

Beautiful group of slithery beasties - like an Aboriginal painting, but with rainbow colours.

Cheers,

Nicky -
I always get such inspiration from your beautiful patterns and creations. PLUS, I just LOVE the last post about your mum's celebration! I love that your nieces were flinging strawberries at the cake and that it needed to sit and get gooeier. That is cool! I shall try it! Love your work, as always!

Wow, I am wordless! Such beautiful snakes with creative snakeplay.
I am so in touch with your illo and feeling that your creative juice made us so inspired.

Thank you for the play, I want to challenge to pay along.
Happy weekends Nicky and family!

Hi Nicky! This is a such a super illustration, it takes all the 'eeuw' out of slithery snakes!! Fascinating creatures, but NO WAY would I want to put my hand in amongst them! Thanks for your note on my blog - I've actually been in Dubai for the last two weeks with never a thought for my website!!

Lovely and colorful...Almost look like candy coated...But of course, with snakes looks can be deceptive!

JNESS said...

Very eye catching, I love the color scheme!

Tomás Serrano said...

....but my eyes want to keep looking - so colorful!!

This reminded me of a dream I had last weekend of a slew of snakes slithering in shallow water around my feet - YUK!

Anairam said...

Eeek! They remind me of nightmares I had as a child - the floor is full of slithering snakes and I can't get to the door! At least these ones are colourful ...

Yasmina said...

These look super-awesome!
Are they poisonous?! Because I was just thinking they look pretty friendly ...
