Tiny Footprints

Oak Leaves - oil 5x7

Yesterday, I went to my Tuesday Paint group. I was finishing up a small painting of some oak leaves I picked from the red oak tree in my back yard. The painting was lying flat on the table since last Tuesday, I thought, undisturbed. When I picked it up I noticed two mouse droppings on the painting. I thought no big deal and dusted them off but as I got a closer look I noticed the mouse must have trotted across the oil paint before it had dried tracking the lighter paint into the darker background. Cute little foot prints all over the painting. Who knew even our furry friends appreciate art. I painted over their work.
