I don't seem to get the color balance correct when I photograph (the otter's paws don't have cadmium red on the palms!) Oh well! Waiting to dry to finished up he details and touch-up!

If any of you played cat's cradle, you probably are familiar with Kurt Vonnegut's book from the 1960's, "Cat's Cradle". Well, this isn't a painting with deep meaning just some fun! All my work is done freehand, no tracings, projectors, etc! this is a 12" x 12" x 1.75 OIL
