I painted this for my daughter's room, she's six months old. I used acrylics and had a lot of fun using glazes, which was new for me. I loved how I could play around with the colors and really layer things. I'm going to make another painting for my son next, another woodland creature doing something....not sure what yet!

OMG that is so adorable!!! Love the effects you've created with your layering. It's so dynamic, like those squirrels will move at any moment!

Yikes, how did I not reply to this, thank you everyone! Cheesy
I actually added some more to it, I realized I forgot their whiskers, lol, and I added a few fur details and fixed the horizon line, it was bugging me. I do need to get sketching for the next painting for my son, I think I'm thinking too hard, and I need to stop thinking and start doing! I'm leaning towards rabbits. I was considering foxes, but when I looked up photos of them I wasn't as inspired as I thought I would be. Of course he wants a tractor in it, but I'm not sure if I want to paint that, so I'll most likely do something else.

Eeep!  I love it!  That would look so cute on notecards!
That's a good idea, I didn't even think of that. Thanks! I should look into getting them printed. I've been toying with the idea of getting into consignment, and I was considering getting prints of this in clear sleeves. Note cards are a nice idea too.
