raccoons


This is Mary’s latest painting which she calls simply Raccoons. She paints in oil and puts a lot of fine detail in her paintings. The monarch butterfly in the lower left corner is a nice touch. The hours that she puts into each painting is mind boggling. I just wouldn’t have the patience for it. To me raccoons always look like bandits because of the black mask across the eyes. And they are bandits in a way when on their nocturnal forays they decide to raid your garbage can looking for something to eat. They seem to adapt to living around people so well. I look forward to her next painting which is the colorful Baltimore Oriole. Have a nice day wherever you may be. Lew
