Day 10- Groundhog field

Day 7 of the painting challenge…

Groundhog field

Day 10 of the 30 in 30.   This was inspired by a field I pass often in Rhode Island.  It may look like an ordinary field but it is not.  And that is the point of this post.   This field is home to many creatures, specifically a bunch of ground hogs.  99% of the time that I pass this field, I see one.  Even when I took the photo for this painting, I got a few in the photo.


And that got me thinking.  This field is in a prime commercial spot.  Which worries me.  I firmly believe that we must share the earth.  Not just with people, but also with creatures.  Maybe that’s why I try to help animals so much.  They simply can’t speak for themselves.  We have to.  I hope this art creates awareness of all the little creatures that call these fields and other places home.  We should do what we can to save some land for them, or create environments where they can still thrive alongside us.
