"Armadillo at Sundown"
Invasive and interesting are the armadillos that have found their way into the low country. Most generally ignore this strange looking creature, but for me they have always been a source of intrigue ever since I first ran into them on Cumberland Island, GA. In this painting one sits up using its tail as a kick stand to smell the air as the sun sets behind it. The armadillo is relatively blind and deaf and relies on its sense of smell to alert it to nearby predators. 24x48inches on handcrafted wooden frame.
