Meet Forrest, the beloved pet of Troy and Sharon. Unfortunately, Forrest has crossed over the "rainbow bridge". One of their friends, commissioned me to do this painting.
Otters are one of those cute little animals that we all love to feel have human characteristics. The way they float on their backs, using their bellies for a table. I once read they link paws when they sleep, so they will not float away from each other.
Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife? I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration. Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images. Thanks so much, Ted.
