Nowhere Fast-Hamster

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my contribution to The Wheel Challenge at DPW posted by Carol Carmichael.

The wheel may not bring "freedom" to this fellow, but at least there is exercise involved.
Don't feel all alone, little hamster. We all have those days once in a while.
Hope you like it!

  1. Thanks for the smile! I pinned this in my "Other's Paintings I love over at Pinterest.

  2. What a cute little face and I love your title too.

  3. Love this one, Dean. Brings back so many happy memories of my girls having these little guys in the plastic balls rolling around my house!!

  4. I hesitate to use the word adorable...but........adorable!

  5. The hamster is adorable. And I love your interpretation of "the freedom of wheels".

  6. He is adorable Dean! What a little chubby guy. That wheel can only bring him good things.

  7. Such a cute expression...Like he got caught at something...

  8. Thank you, Karla...I'm honored!

    Thank you, Tim! Nice to see you.

  11. Thank you for your comments, Sherry and Angela....Hamsters are cute little rascals aren't they?!

  12. Hi there Deano!... Love this cheeky character!

    Aside from the very clever "guy on the wheel" analogy inferred by the title... this painting coasts me joyfully back to many happy hours... side by side with my kids... taking in "The Adventures of Hammy Hamster".

    Sweet memories of simpler.. quiet moments shared with my kids!

    Thank you!
    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  13. "Sweet memories of simpler.. quiet moments shared with my kids!"

    A resounding Amen to that, Bruce!
