First Snow by Janet Chui

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

One of my earlier paintings but all-time favourites, and there is a story behind it: I adopted two dwarf hamsters from an animal rescue, and the smaller white one was blind, and followed the other one around faithfully. Though not born from the same family, the two creatures were inseparable, and inspired this painting.

Watercolours on canvas paper, 8 × 5 inches.

Janet Chui is a fantasy artist and illustrator working primarily in watercolours and mixed media.
