Samantha the Hamster, 4 x 4 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
I wanted to paint a small animal today. My first attempt was a mouse. Well, that was a scraper and while I was scraping, I was nagging myself for letting more than two days go by without painting. I really had to fight the urge to call it a day and give up.
I decided that perhaps the photo reference for the mouse was not clear enough and decided to work with a hamster photo which was clearer. Samantha and I are happy I did not quit.
