Afternoon Sketch

I spent the afternoon working on a sketch, inspired by the story that came out last week about the wee squirrel, brought in from the cold and then nurtured to health.  I enjoyed the photo essay where the reader sees the squirrel bonding with two household pets.  Sometimes I am so inspired by nature and I also like seeing the positive in people when the world is often so cruel and overwhelming.  This is just a nice story!

I used a wood burner to indicate a nest after painting and glazing the image of the baby squirrel.  I’m going to pursue this technique and finish up a body of these ‘wee babe’ images…all submersed in wood burned nesting material.
