stop normalizing the grind and start normalizing whatever this is

@poafies Those critters are having a merry Winter celebration!

@poafies tag yourself, I'm the opossum on the right in the background

@loren @poafies I’m the male cardinal in the middle looking at everyone with disdain.

@loren I'd like to think I'm the raccoon out in front on the right kicking its legs in the air, but in actuality I'm the raccoon on the left looking down bashfully

@poafies i went through the same thought process with the opossum in the front! haha

@poafies opossums the heart and soul of the party as usual

@poafies definitely!!

Btw, the painting is known as “Christmas in the Woods” by W. Philip Vinton Clayton. 1917.

@poafies This is an illustration of my brain, and each animal is an anxiety.

@poafies probably shouldn't have commented this to a stranger. haha sorry.

@poafies OH MY! The season of frozen apples on the ground. Yummmm, feeding time!

@poafies This was used as cover art for a CD of Christmas music (Wild Christmas?), rendered exclusively in sampled animal sounds, from shrimp to humpback whales. Lovely madness.

@poafies A bunch of woodland critters dancing around in the snow and maybe running on cider? Sign me up!

@poafies Best guess, it's Saturnalia in the Animal Farm Cinematic Universe.

@poafies Bc if the possums really start dancing around then THERE is a party going.

I'm a rotting apple on the ground that they're getting drunk on eating 🍎

@poafies @loren oh, that’s the annual Winter Solstice Fuzzy Woodland Creature Rave. This was the year the possum dug up some really gnarly mushrooms and brought them to the celebration. That was a wild year.


@poafies @MmeLibertine there’s definitely quite a few wasted forest animals in there 😂

@poafies I dislike cold weather, but will gladly join in on this fun!

@poafies the grimm fairy tales reboot of the step up movies is looking good.

@poafies This is so lovely. Where's it from and are there more like it?

@Finch if you search "Philip Vinton Clayton" online you may find similar works

@poafies Thanks for replying. I'll certainly have a look.

@poafies Some of his illustrations - particularly the elves - look strikingly similar to Fritz Baumgarten's. If you like this sort of thing, I'd definitely Google him.
