I feel like not enough people love opossums, so when I got this little joey pic, I was so happy to paint him. His name is Kenny Rogers and this painting was shipped down to New Orleans, where he lives with his very lucky human.
I feel like this is my Madonna and Child of dog paintings. This was one of those commissions in which we were both in immediate agreement of which photo to use.
