I painted a larger version of Otto in May in Grand Marais at the Art Colony- I swear that is a magical place, seriously! Paintings just pour out of me up there- maybe because I don't have so many distractions... today, the storms have been distracting me, because my boys went up to my sis-in-law's farm for a birthday party today, and I worry about them~ maybe you know what that's like.
Anyway, this is a smaller version of Otto! Otto belongs to Anna, who says he is one of the North Star Therapy Animals! I'll see if I can get her to send me more info~
