Gray Squirrel, miniature painting

Here is my latest attempt at a miniature and my first in many many years of messing around with acrylics. The painting is 3.5 x 5 inches and the squirrel is about 2.5 inches. I think if I were going to put this in a show, he really should be a little smaller. But, all in all, this was good practice for me to work something so little. Next time, I hope to do smaller and better.

What a lovely little miniature. I was lucky to "stumble" across you in my wanderings looking at miniature artists. I do minis too and have fallen in love with them... Your work is outstanding, hope you do more minis.
