awwww!! i love chipmunks :) i have a story about these that i am realy thankfull for. when i look at this i am back in Vancouver at the zoo (1989) sitting by a tree and feeding a few of these giving them nuts. that was the first time i could actualy see them. I have an eyesight problem an can see only 15 procent so this was a gift to me.
thank you for making me think of that day for a moment again.
you are very talented to be able to create such a remarcable piece of art :).
bright blessings
Tereza

Exquisite work, I can't believe you can get that much detail in such a small space - you must paint with a cat whisker... :)

I am always amazed with the composition of your paintings. The animals are so realistic, plus the background really adds to that feeling as well.
Beautiful work, once again :heart:
