Midnight Vole

At my cabin there is a little Vole who lives in a stump. He ventures out late at night and eats all the seeds left behind by Squeeker, the chipmunks and birds. Essentially he is the clean up crew! He stuffs his cheeks with as much as they will hold and then scampers away to hide it all. 

I made two little paintings of this darling creature. The first is watercolour and ink (5" by 4") and the second one is acrylic on canvas board (6" by 8".) I used the same reference photo for both paintings so it is interesting to see how different they turned out.
They are both for sale in my Etsy shop!
