Mortlach 70 yo 1938/2008 46.1% “Generations” Gordon and MacPhail.

I just had a sample of the oldest single malt ever bottled on planet earth.

And at ₤10,000 a bottle, it’s a good thing it was so divine. Old cabinets, wood. Oy vay.

Veteran Squirrel and his Bride – in progress

Veteran Squirrel and his Bride

The Veteran Squirrel and his Bride, is in progress (30). This is my first “squirrel couple” painting.
Most of the squirrels in our yard would disagree with this arrangement, since it’s every squirrel for his/herself where the nuts are concerned.

Along with my excitement for this new painting, we had an unfortunate casualty today.

Car  + squirrel running serpentine = dead squirrel. You have to imagine that’s the way it went down. Car driving straight, and the squirrels – they just get crazy when they cross the street.

The weird thing is (as if painting and being obsessed with squirrels isn’t weird enough), is that I recognize this old timer. Since taking
photos of “our” squirrels for my paintings, I’ve starting to see and recognize the unique characteristics in their faces.

Here’s what the Old Timer looked like before his accident today.

RIP Hungry One.

Let the angels sing, the Bagpiper Squirrel is finally complete (38). I started this painting back in May 2009 (click here to see original post).

I posted progress on it June 24, 2009 | August 09, 2009 | August 19, 2009 | October 01, 2009.  And then I got distracted with the Evening Golf Squirrel which was finished December 07, 2009.

I will now tackle the other unfinished works, and begin new ones. If you haven’t visited my online gallery lately, here’s the link.

Many thanks for your continued interest and support.
