Doodlewash prompt ‘Chipmunk’. Okay, I must confess. I painted a ground squirrel not a chipmunk. I couldn’t resist this guy’s cheeky but relaxed pose.

Though close in looks and habits, the ground squirrel doesn’t have head stripes and has shorter ears. They never climb and tend to avoid wooded areas. Most notably, they don’t store food even though they hibernate.

  1. I absolutely adore your laid-back chipmunk! And, unrelated to that, I figured out how to Like your blog!

  2. This ground squirrel is CHILL! What a relaxed dude. I love your use of color for shadows….so inventive! Thanks for the little bio. of this cute fellow…I had no idea of his habits….NOT storing food? What does he or she eat? 🙂
