Description I take much of my inspiration from nature, which is not unusual, but I also like a good story. So when I decided to paint foxes sleeping in their burrow in the snow, I thought that someone should leave them a little Yuletide surprise. The squirrel very thoughtfully leaves what he has, which is an acorn. It doesnt matter that the foxes wont find it appetizing. Its the thought that counts, after all.
Asha Hawkesworth, Gresham Member Since August 2016 Artist Statement I love to paint and write. I am the author of several children's books, including "Grandma's Roses" and "Don't Bother Boris!" My art is inspired by the natural world, the realm of spirit, and my own children, who have collaborated with me on occasion. I currently reside in Oregon with my family and quite a few cats. In addition to painting, I love to work in my garden, bake, and enjoy the comforts of home.
