My sister, Katie, my cousin, Jennifer, and I like to assign spirit animals to ourselves and others that we know. It's the most fun when you know someone who kind of looks like an animal (you know, like that one relative you have who looks a bit like a cockatoo.) For Christmas, I wanted to paint a picture of each of their spirit animals for them. Of course, since I'm addicted to painting on wood slices, they ended up on little, rustic salvaged wood circles.
Katie's spirit animal is the wolf, I painted a full moon in the background to add a little mystery :)
Jennifer's spirit animal is the sun bear, which, of course, required me to paint a sun in the background. I really love how much of a cutie this sun bear turned out to be.
