The Red Squirrel – I’ve always been a fan of the squirrel. I believe it goes back to when I was 7 years old and had a pet squirrel (he had fallen out of a tree as a baby and we were rehabilitating him). Ever since, I see a squirrel and immediately associate it with my childhood.
This was painted on a stretched leaf patterned upholstery fabric. The leaf pattern is subtle, but you can see it in the white section at the bottom. The pattern really pops when the painting is lit.
