Angela Clark will too often be found trying to incorporate the term ‘fisticuffs’ into everyday conversation.

“This character is number two in a continuing series of holiday-themed squirrels. I decided on squirrels as a tribute and inside joke for my grandpa and his love but mostly hate relationship with them. I remain fueled to complete this series as a quest to personify everything I see. Admittedly, I find these acrobatic rodents to be a healthy balance between entertainment and menace. They often waddle comically or fight heroically when they aren’t pirating tasty morsels from the bird feeder or turning the lawn into an excessively aerated mess of forgotten food. Feel free to see what other random things I am working on at www.arclarkart.com.” – The Artist
