painting: horse friends

This one looks a little different than my usual work, because I painted on wood hardboard. There is no tooth like there is in canvas, it is perfectly smooth surface. I’m very happy with how it turned out, and I’m going to stock up on more of these surfaces.

12″x12″ oil on cradled hardboard. Available in my Etsy shop. Thank you for looking. 🙂

The Sneak Thief

Are squirrels one of your favorite animals? Personally, I think of squirrels as rabbits whom someone grabbed the tail of, and pulled so hard that the ears got shorter as the tail got longer. We have gray squirrels roaming our yard, but this one was from a photo shared on a Facebook artist group. If an image is perfect, why not take advantage?

We are thawing out here today. Im so happy to know that winter is almost over, and the flowers will be coming back soon.

painting: red squirrel

Are you being hit by this absurd weather? We sure are. I hope you and your family are safe, and have the necessities you need.

Before we were hit with so much snow, I painted this sweet little red squirrel. He’s from a photo shared on a Facebook artist site, and I thought he was too perfect to pass up. We have gray squirrels where I live, and I think I’ve seen fox squirrels, but not one like this guy.

He’d be perfect for Christmas, or winter decor.

8″x8″ oil on stretched canvas, painted by knife. Available now in my Etsy shop. SOLD, THANK YOU!

Stay home and stay safe!
