Mr. Mooseman

This is a small Birthday picture for a dear friend, best known by the name Mooseman. At first I wanted to hang some little Dutch and Canadian flags on the antlers and give him some nice wooden shoes. But then, while painting, I thought, let's not try to be wittier than the master of the 'funart' himself, he is so much funnier than I ever will be.
So here you go, Mr. Mooseman, at special request, Happy Birthday to you!! I hope you will have a wonderful day and wish many more may follow with your sweet friend Thea!

It's a very fine painting. The color contrasts with the snow and the form is true Moose!

Artist Reply: It was the first and only moose I have ever painted! And it's probably hanging on a Canadese wall right now. :) Thank you very much, Vincent!

Nice painting Anneke. I love the brush stokes you've use to get the Moose fur out and about.
