This may be the end of my career as an Artist. Afterall, how can I possibly compete with painting meerkats?!
They are cute (not a word that I often use), sociable, little critters (also not a word I often use, but it seems so appropriate here). And I see that they obviously have no fear of the blank canvas that plagues so many human artists . I can only hope that their interest in art is fleeting and that they return quickly to the pursuit of digging for insects. If you really want to encourage them in their efforts, here is the full story from Canberra Zoo in Australia:
I’m visiting Canberra this year and may have to protest outside the zoo’s meerkat enclosure if they persist in their artistic endeavors!
