THE ZOO was this week's Illustration Friday theme. Several years ago I did this painting of St. Francis with all the pets I've ever had. I think it works.

Thanks for visiting!

Oh Ellen! What a wonderful menagerie of pets...You are fortunate to have had all these amaing animals! It looks like you have had a cattle dog and he/she looks like my Rat boy (He has that lightning bolt on the forehead. Great work and it is perfect for the prompt!

very nice idea, original and cute.

Imagine Francis as a child! Dragging in all those "critters!" Fabulous take on the topic, Ellen!

I think it more than 'works'. Wonderful tribute to your critters. Our past pets tend to surface in our memories from time to time and bring comfort. Now, you've gone and gotten me all misty-eyed. Great illustration.
