MADE TO ORDER: Eastern Chipmunk, Tamius Striatus, meaning storer, on branch in the apple tree, Acrylic painting on 8 x 10 canvas panel.
The inspiration behind the painting came when Pop (my husband of 54 years as of 2018), and I were sitting on the front porch, and a little chipmunk darts across the path in front of us, from bush to bush. This continued over a period of a few days. Then one day, the little chipmunk began darting up the steps toward us, then stops and stares at us, and then back down again. Then from the other side of the pathway comes another chipmunk, then we realize there is two of them, and one by one, a chipmunk repeated darting up the steps, stopping and staring, about a half dozen times. Pop began to gently clap his hand, and say "come on" and the chipmunk responded by darting back down the steps.
I told Pop this is inspiration for a painting. I researched the chipmunks found in the area, and discovered it was called the Eastern Chipmunk, meaning it is found in the eastern side of North America. beginning along with middle Tennessee. I discovered that along with its acorns and seeds, it would stuff in its cheeks, for storage for the winter, mini apples as they began to develop on the tree. And when I see something more than once, I always see that this is definitely inspiration for the next art piece.

Today bring an open window of the inquisitive chipmunk into your home, and enjoy him, as much as we enjoyed him when he playfully came up the steps, stared at us, and ran back down again, repeating this for several times during a day we were enjoying ourselves outdoors on the porch.
