Groundhog Day!

It's Groundhog Day again, and it seems that most of our fine, plump rodent friends are predicting an early spring! (For the groundhog day rookies, this means they did NOT see their shadows.) Weeeeeee!

I enjoyed seeing some of America's famous groundhogs on the news this morning, and now I want to see more, more, more! I've decided to feature some really cool groundhog art today, from some really cool artists. Clicking on any of the pictures will take you right to the artist's shop, where you too can own a fabulous groundhog piece of your very own. All art pictured is posted with the artist's permission.

Crochet any? I found this adorable groundhog at Planet June Crochet Patterns & More. You can purchase the pattern and make your very own fine furry friend. Will he see his shadow? See more at

Don't you hate it when this happens? *grin* Just when you're ready to go out, that pesky groundhog latches on. I love this print by Amber Alexander. It comes signed and dated by the artist herself.

The groundhog in this adorable photographic print by Lisa K. Walraven of Happy Wren is contemplating some serious business. Perhaps he is honing his weather-predicting skills, or basking in the satisfaction of a job well done. You can see more art by Ms. Walraven at her website,

We all need to take a break now and then. And that's what this well-nourished rodent was doing when photographer Kelly D. Brown skillfully captured his image. He dares you to interrupt! You can see more photography by Ms. Brown by visiting her website,

I couldn't help but smile when I saw this happy little greeting card by Crystal Dyck of The Lil Bitty Card Company.

The groundhog watches over the land in this colorful and bold print of an original oil painting by Walt Curlee.This painting won a first place award at the 2010 American Art Awards, and I can certainly see why. You can see more of Mr. Curlee's work at

A big giant thank you to all the wonderful artists who allowed me to share their work!

I've had so much fun exploring the web for interesting groundhog art. I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my favorite groundhog finds.


  1. Great post! I hope Phil was telling the truth this morning, ha ha! Hurry Spring!

  2. Wonderful finds! I especially love the Amber Alexander print :)
