After a Day in (the Country) Burlington, 24x24 oil
It's amazing how wildlife has adapted to the urban setting. My dogs have been sprayed by skunks more times than I dare to say. They have chased many rabbits out of the backyard and have had a few encounters with groundhogs and possums. This painting started out as most paintings do, an idea. The idea was then submitted to the upcoming show called 'Urban and Rural'. I love combining images that don't always seem to belong together, as in this one, a skunk smelling a bouquet of flowers. This painting is in the current show at the Art Gallery of Burlington which is on until September 5.
