"Best Friends" is a painting that I did to help bring folks to a large art fair, here in Bozeman, Montana.  It was the Bozeman MADE Fair, which featured over 200 artisans.  I was so pleased to create this wonderful trio that is such a joyful image.  My favorite parts: I love the Momma otter, jaunting along with her baby.  I love the raccoon welcoming us.  Maybe the raccoon wants us to join in? Red fox is so happy too, it's time to make! I'm very proud of this piece and hope it brings you as much joy as I had in creating it.  The original is a soft pastel on sanded board. 

The original is part of artist's collection.
