Description The short-tailed weasel is a small yet ferocious critter. In summer, its fur is brown, and in winter, it turns all white except for the black tip on its tail; in this phase, it is called an ermine.
F.T. McKinstry, New England Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I am a fantasy author who loves to paint. Writing and painting work together nicely; one inspires me to do the other. Endlessly fascinated by woods, gardens, birds, wild animals, the sun, moon and stars, I like to put to canvas, or in words, inner landscapes done in rich colors and a mysterious feel inspired by fairy tales, myth, legend and imagination.
