New Custom Coaster Set- Gentlemen Squirrels!

Squirrels. Some refer to them as “rats in trees.” In fact, one of my favorite movies, Inglorious Basterds includes this infamous speech from villain du jour, Col Landa, ” I purpose to you, any disease a rat could spread,  a squirrel could equally carry. Yet I assume you don’t share the same animosity with squirrels that you do with rats, do you?” If you aren’t an amalgamation of the Nazi’s, then you probably see bushy tailed squirrels as a cute and frenetic part of nature. My fiance identifies with a squirrel’s curious nature, so you’ll see some of that in my paintings if you look closely. This is all to say that I had a recent custom coaster order with a general “squirrels” theme. I of course decided to paint them as dandy gentlemen squirrels. I added some special features to these coasters, including incorporating metallic copper paint into the design, metallic copper edges, a painted bottom, and contrasting felt feet. See them below in all their glory!
