This is a hazel- or common dormouse. Master of hibernation. It hibernates from October to
April/ May. Also a master of cuteness hugging its own tail while sleeping.

This is the 3rd time I’m participating in Leslie Saeta’s ‘30 Paintings in 30 Days’ challenge
except this time I’m not painting and not creating 30 works of art.

’15 Lino’s in 30 Days’!
Cut one day, print the next.
The idea of these challenges is to create more art than you normally would, learn, have fun

hibernate all winter do a project instead.
This idea inspired me to the following theme: hibernation/ sleep. All 15 lino’s will be of sleepy,
First in the series is this cat. Tomorrow it’s time to print!!
