Squirrel paintings

Here is the final finished portrait of "Braveheart" the little squirrel who fell from our tree.  I am going to donate this to the auction in support of the wildlife center here in Delphi.  They did everything in their power to save this little guy, but it was not to be.  At least they were able to save his two sisters.  They are doing well and will be released back into the wild sometime in the spring.
This is my second painting.  I have just started laying in my initial washes of color.  If I get it done in time, this will also be donated to the auction.   I know some folks see these little guys as pest...who raid their bird feeders and such...but I just love them!
