Is Mrs Rabbit Home?

Painting (Oil on canvas)
Size: 11"Hx14"W
Animal Encounter Series. I was plein air painting by a farmyard creek a few years ago. Five feet from me, tall grass started moving in spite of there being no wind. Swiftly, I grabbed my camera, leaned in, and focused it at the base of the grass to see what would emerge. A predatory mink with its intense eyes stared right back at me. I learned later that the nearby farmers had been experiencing chicken coop invasions, thus were actively hunting for this creature. Here is the resulting painting after years of contemplation and planning.
