I finished a painting last week in my series of raccoon paintings, “Bandit Yawn”. We have two rescue raccoons who showed up on our farm five days after their mother was killed in the road late spring of this year. They are staying with us until next spring when we plan on relocating them to the Short Hills. They are fun, curious girls and have become the subject of some recent paintings. “Bandit Yawn” is oil on prepared paper and I’ll be mounting it on board before framing it next week. I’ll be adding it to my gallery. The original will be available then, and giclee prints are available now. I’ve added gift certificates for art workshops to my store, and will be adding gift certificates for artwork too. Contact me if you need a gift certificate in any denomination that isn’t available, or if you would prefer to pay by cheque rather than online.
