Artist's Description

“Who says squirrels aren’t white? Them’s fightin’ words Mister!”

The local news said white squirrels were born earlier this year on the grounds of Charles River Park. I’ve seen Spirit Bear (black bear with white fur) in the Great Rainforest and a leucistic robin in Back Bay Boston, but never a white squirrel. So on a beautiful September afternoon, off I went in search of another white spirit. Not to disappoint, found 3 grown and feisty triplets who the neighbors have named Marshmallow, Snowflake and Cream Cheese. Not sure of his name but this guy will challenge anyone who doesn’t believe in white squirrels and prove he’s no Marshmallow!
