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.
