I was out filling our bird feeders one morning and this curious squirrel sat on a branch in one of our many white ash trees getting very upset with me for being in his space.  I made this painting for my husband, who has a special connection to squirrels. It is one of my few acrylic pieces and was an interesting study of bark. A person doesn’t realize how dynamic something as simple as bark is until you really sit down and study it.  There are so many different textures and colors, it was a great learning experience for me to paint it.
