A Good Mom (Red Panda version)

Did this for 'Share One Planet' contest. Took Red Pandas as my subject and tried to potray them in a simple, everyday situation :)


Title: A Good Mom
"It is important for red panda cubs to play outside regularly. When they're tired and falling asleep, Red Panda Mom will bring them closer to protect them from danger and colds. A good natured mom indeed."

Enjoy :)

NB: This might be a bit subtle but I put the 'tree/brances' without leaves (background), as a metaphor of their danger of extinction (I hope it won't happen though).

Are you sure they're tired from play? Looks like they just got up from hibernation. Very nice piece, sir!

Very adorable! Your paintings always amazes me. I love the emotion behind this one as well. Good luck with the contest!

It's so cute, the one on the top left with the slits for eyes looks as if was saying "I'm not tired at all" just before falling asleep over its bro :P
Good luck on the contest, I think you've got very good chances :) Very lovely colours.
