Just finished a little acrylic painting to add to my galaxy dens series! This one is of a passel of possums. Like the others, it features a deep-seated wrap-around canvas that has been painted so that it needs no frame, the stars go all around!
I love how personable possums can be. I follow several wildlife rescue accounts and I love reading their updates! I see a lot of them on my evening walks, around here they often hang out in the grassy areas near the sidewalk, and they will freeze if caught in a flashlight. I’ve never had the blessing of seeing a mother covered in babies but from photographs I imagine it would be quite a sight!
I started the sketch during Creative Quarantine and the painting was finished a while later. It is now hanging in Hannah’s Local Gallery in Amherst MA (in the Mill District) and is for sale!
Here’s one of the ones made during Creative Quarantine
