This little guy and his friends have a pretty good tunnel system in the front gardens of my house as well as near the feeders in the back. I was sitting on my front steps when I spotted him sneaking through the flower garden, then he went right down a hole on the edge of the garden. I sat perfectly still, he seemed to know something was out of place so he came back out of his hole and that’s when the idea for this painting was born. He stayed for a while at the hole, and we had a contest on who would move first. I think he knew I was there but couldn’t understand why I wasn’t moving, after a while he went about his business, and I made a mental note to take some pictures of the spot the next day.
