My goal as an artist is to become photo realistic. I always have been impressed by all the art-works that may be mistaken by photography.
Can you look at a that little friend without smiling? Even if they can make catastrophic damages into a garden, they are still stealing you a smile... That’s why I call that painting a little happiness.
Inspired by the wildlife and the little animals who are living in the forest, and sometime more close to us that we might think. This is a friendly portrayal of a nice little friend the Raccoon.

My reference for this painting was a desktop background that was on Explorer “Bing” on September 21st (2012).
I couldn't get any information from the author of that photograph. I look on the net and saw different versions of the same subject. I decided to interpret that desktop background my way.
