The Finished Gelato Piece - a Chipmunk

My plan had been to finish the piece by painting a little chipmunk in the center frame.  So I began by drawing a chipmunk on a separate piece of paper so that I could trace and transfer it to the board.  But I got so involved in the drawing that it because a finished piece in itself.  So I decided to just tear the right size piece out of the drawing paper and glue it to the center of the board.  Then I put just the faintest possible washes of the blue and green Gelato colors in the background of the drawing.

A quick spray with workable fixative sealed the piece.  I love this little chipmunk!  I was going to put her on my Etsy site, but I think I'll hold onto her for a while!
