Hedgehog painting. (The Animal Kingdom)
This is a painting I made for The Animal Kingdom Groupshow at Gallery Nucleus.
It's available here:
I wanted to paint the hedgehog because this animal looks so cute, but if you want to touch it, it would probably hurt you. I love this natural contradiction. Since I am collecting albino images (because they are so rare) I wanted to paint him white. And at the moment it's very cold in the Netherlands, so naturally I'm attracted to the cozy pose of this little animal surrounded by leaves as if he's having a wintersleep.
