Red Squirrel - wildlife oil painting

Red Squirrel - 5" x 7" oil on hardboard/masonite


The number of these little creatures living in the British Isles has dramatically decreased since the arrival of the grey squirrel from America in the 1800's but efforts are being made to try and help with their survival. There is a website dedicated to this work called the Red Squirrel Survival Trust whose Patron is HRH The Prince of Wales. If you're interested in finding out more about the red squirrel you might want to visit their website

This painting is straight off the easel and will need to dry for 2-3 weeks before it can be shipped
