My Photograph of a Squirrel on a Pumpkin at Descanso Gardens + October Sketches Art, Day 26 Sketch, Big Eye Mermaid...



This photograph of this squirrel on a pumpkin was taken at at Descanso Gardens.  He was surrounded by acorns, but preferred the pumpkin.  I thought it was very cute and perfect for National Pumpkin Day.  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!


I love to paint animals, you may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  I think she has a very direct gaze and her hair is flowing gently around her...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a goddess or a fairy angel.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in October.  This is day 26.  

This is a rough sketch.

I LOVE that photo, the squirrel is clever, pumpkin tastes better than acorns! Really great shot, here the squirrels are very shy, it's hard to get near them at all. Great sketch too, as always. Hugs, Valerie
