1078 The Son of a Wild Life

It is only four months to Boxing Day... so it is time to maybe post a winter painting from 2009. I painting this in the Watershed Farm Studio on one of the hottest days of the summer.
This is the son of #0610 "Wildlife". I arbitrarily decided to use the word "son" instead of "sun" in this effort. It could have gone either way as there is a lot of light and shadows in this painting.
This is the first painting when I froze my hands but it was worth it. I thought it deserved a bigger format so this is it. I added one more set of cotton tail tracks but otherwise it is pretty much like the inspiration.
