There are six new tote bags in the shop today. These ones were fun to paint and, for the most part, turned out not disappointingly. If I had to pick a favorite of this bunch, it would probably be this sea otter. It is the second sea otter I have painted on tote bags, and one of two otters in this batch - the other being a river otter I painted from an otter we met in Bend at the High Desert Museum.
I was able to take a few liberties with the color, and put some lovely highlights in the hair of this particular sea otter. ART!
