Moonlit Paintings!

I have had a few people ask for more "girls in the snow in the moonlight" paintings, so here they are! I won't be too sad if I don't sell these because I love the way they look in my antique gold frames. (not included) They will be sold separately, but they look great together.

There is a story behind these paintings. Little Karlee worries so much about the animals out in the cold night that she sneaks out at midnight and lures one or two out of the woods, sometimes using an apple or carrot. She brings them into her room where she cuddles them until they are warm. She brings them back to where she found them just before dawn, leaving them some extra food.

There really is a Karlee and she is my niece who is majoring in Animal Science at the University of Missouri. She has always had a great passion for animals. She must!--this week she had to actually put her hand all the way up a cow's "you know what" for one of her classes! Oh Karlee--you are amazing!

I will be putting these paintings on Ebay tonight. The link is at the top of the page.
