Tree Runner by KelliRoos Tree Runner by KelliRoos
8 x 10 inches on 140lb watercolor paper. Brown ink and watercolor.

EDIT Fixed something that was bothering me. Now I am okay with it. :-)

This is an illustration for a nursery. I wanted something that a child could think and dream about. The idea of scurrying through the trees jumping and running must be a thrilling thing to do.

It reminds of Beatrix Potter's Squirrel Nutkin

well, I don't so much watch them, as they come up to the windows to investigate the cats inside. You're welcome also!

I always wanted to do that... but am told that I am a little bit squirrelly at times.

:lol: Course the problem is we'd have to walk on the ground sometimes, and squirrels don't have much sucess with cars. ;-)

Love the composition on this one. And, the fact that the squirrel is whole. ;) But seriously, that is one cute squirrel. This is a great example of your linework, especially when viewing it full-sized.

This one is a favorite of mine for how large and dynamic pose the squirrel is in.

Squirels are my FAVORITE! I come from Arizona and didnt ever see one until I moved to the midwest and I just love them. I could watch them all day! You did a great job, he is a total cutie!

your going to think i'm nuts but here is my reason for faving this. other than it being a really good painting;) a few days ago a baby squirrel fell from our tree and it was pouring rain. So we put it in a box with some cherrios and a towel. When the rain stopped we put it next to the tree it fell from and the mother a few hours later put the poor thing around it's back and took it up to their nest:) I was so relieved a cat or something like that didn't get it:) great painting!
