the outcast

8x10", acrylic on wood panel


a friend took a photo of this little guy a few years ago as he peered down at her camping group out in the wilderness. i've always loved raccoons and find it interesting how they are so curious, beautiful, and manage to live among us even in cities. it seems odd to me that most of us have a sense of fear and know virtually nothing about them other than that they seem to want our food scraps. i'm pretty sure they know us better.
