I love watching squirrels in the park, when they are climbing up the trees to hide on the top branches, or chasing each other on the ground. Sometimes they come so close, you can even touch them. I never have, but I've seen a photo lately of a squirrel taking a ride on someone's rucksack :))) These cute little raskals can be very funny sometimes!

I've enjoyed every inch of this small study, from the tiny nose and shiny eyes to the tip of the bushy tail.

Have a lovely week!


  1. I love the way you have painted his bushy tail - it is a great painting

  2. what a sweetie pie --- you have caught the fluffiness & perkiness perfectly! we have lots of squirrels in our back yard, it is funny to see them chase each other round and round the tree trunks... their favorite pastime is to raid the bird feeder and make hubby mad :) "Rascals" is the right word!

  3. Great blog♥
