Patience - SOLD

24" x 12"
Acrylic on canvas

The farm we're on has tons of beavers that are always busily building dams in the streams that run through the land.  When a flood comes, they take advantage of their good fortune and acquire lots of good, high-up branches that they usually don't have access to when the water's low.  We have a chewed-off branch sitting on our window sill - the bite marks from the beavers are so smooth and polished, and the branch is really quite beautiful.

When trials come, for come they will,
Be patient if you can
-from "Patience" by S. Moore

Beautiful colors and you did such a great job on the beaver. He is so cute, too! It's great that you can observe them so close to home!
