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.
I have a couple paintings to show off (already sold pieces) that I am sure have made it to their homes by now. I don’t like to unveil them publicly if they are gifts, because you never know, it’s possible I might ruin the surprise. And wouldn’t that be a shame?
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?
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.
I’m not entirely sure these really are narcissus. The people who lived in my house before me planted very few flowers, but these are some that came up this spring. They were mixed in with traditional yellow daffodils, so I thought they might be a variation, with bulbs possibly all purchased at the same time. These bloomed two flowers per stem.
