Dormouse Series

Holiday Show 2018

Dormouse are found in Africa, Asia, and Europe. This time, I painted the Hazel Dormouse, which is native to the United Kingdom. They hibernate for a long period in winter. The way they sleep is too cute to ignore! So, this was my subject for the 2018 Holiday Show.

I painted them on 6″x 6″ canvas with acrylic paint. I also used an atomizer for the background.

Unfortunately, my partner feels they look like they are permanently sleeping!… Ha ha. But please look at this picture. Aren’t they so adorable?

I hope we humans don’t destroy these little creature’s life balance anymore in the future!
