"Once you get into a painting like this, it's not going to stand up unless you render everything. This kind of scene gives me the chance to use a lot of colors I don't normally use. I wanted to create the feeling that you were wading through the maple saplings. They are all about knee height, so it's almost like a sunlight-dappled carpet of orange and yellow that's suspended above the forest floor.

"When it came time to add depth to the saplings, I remembered these fellows from my own backyard, and I painted one standing up in the leaves. I also thought this was a good opportunity to communicate raccoons exploring nature.

That's why their fur is fairly thick."
