Detail #1: In Possum’s Cavern

A few weeks ago, while washing dishes, I looked out the kitchen window to see, in broad daylight, a possum leisurely strolling along the side of our house. We tracked it to the front of the house where it quickly scurried across the street and disappeared under a neighbor’s home a few houses away.

I always find encounters with our urbanized wildlife to be exciting. Especially possums. They remind me of very large rats with their intense faces, sharp triangular teeth, and wonderful coloring: pink + white + gray. I decided to let this encounter inform the digital decalcomania drawing I had just begun at the time.

In Possum’s Cavern is the grayscale drawing that my imagination conjured up when I thought about exactly where that possum might live. I used a random digital decalcomania resource image I had prepared at the time as inspiration for the details.

Here is the first of several enlarged details from In Possum’s Cavern.

I will be posting a couple more details and then the full image over the next few days.
