Today's Study - A Chipmunk

What looks like an easy subject matter to paint isn't necessarily so.  I thought this little guy would be a cinch to paint but I really struggled over keeping it simple.  When a critter has fur and whiskers, my natural tendency is to paint them.  I think I took more paint off the board than I put on it.

I'm listening to NPR as I write this - specifically to Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac.  He commented on an author who said he "spent all morning putting in a comma and all afternoon removing it".  I know how the author feels!
