Autumn seems to be arriving early in my back yard with little acorns adorning the old oaks that invite these gentle "wild animals" to pay a visit. This is for the upcoming Take A Word
challenge this week. Imagery from the new itKuPiLLi kit blended in Photoshop. I spent 7 years fostering squirrels through the wildlife rehab center in Marin, taking them in from about 10 weeks old until release and they are amazing animals- some of my guys are still roaming the woods near me!
This has a beautiful sort of reverence about it such a gorgeous piece just wonderful Lori.ReplyDelete
I agree Deann, superb art piece. These little creatures are beautiful and wise, too.ReplyDelete
This is beautiful Lori!ReplyDelete
Wow, that looks so magical. I love the colour and the sparkles ; )ReplyDelete
Have a magical day.
Exquisite work, Lori, and perfect as an illustration for any wildlife book. A standing ovation from Yorkshire.ReplyDelete
Beautiful autumnal piece, Lori. Although these animals are very common in the northern hemisphere, they don't exist in Brazil, so I get fascinated every time I see them when I travel...ReplyDelete
Lori, the fall colors are radiant! So beautiful. Today feels like fall after the hot muggy weather. Maybe it will really come early this year with all that golden beauty.ReplyDelete
breathtaking! love the colors, they are strikingly beautiful!ReplyDelete
I love that brilliant colored peaceful scenery. Squirrels are one of my favorite animals. In my last home we had trees around and there lived a lot of them and I could them feed of my hand.ReplyDelete
An extraordinarily beautiful piece dear Lori! The colours are delicious! xxReplyDelete
Lori I love the sparkles you have added to this very beautiful piece with squirrels, they are so cute.ReplyDelete
What a great tribute to the wild but soft and lovely life Lori!ReplyDelete
We are far from autumn in my part of the world, but it doesn't prevent me to deeply appreciate your so wonderful work and scromptious colors!
Fabulous, Lori...gorgeous, earthy colors surround those cute furry critters!!ReplyDelete
Oh, Lori, this is absolutely exquisite. I love the warm colors, and the tenderness with which you've presented the squirrels. I also enjoyed the personal aside about fostering them. This is just an exceptional piece. BRAVO!ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous Lori!! Such mesmerizing beauty...this captures my heart...such a bewildering glow...stunning creatures!ReplyDelete
Always so symbolic and visually sublime..I enjoy my visits here and where your art takes me journeying within...
I love this. The colors are fabulous for fall and what better subject than a squirrel. I love watching them in our yard....never a dull moment.ReplyDelete
I love squirrels, and this is so beautiful. I hate the feeling that fall is arriving early this year, but it does seem to be in the air.ReplyDelete
