A Tough Nut to Crack

Tough Nut to Crack
4" X 6"

Have you ever heard a hickory nut fall from a tree onto a roof over your head? It can be a startling experience. They are almost impossible to open without a hammer, but somehow the squirrels manage it.

I was drawn to paint this image because of the lovely shadow...and the color of the outer husk. I hope you see it in a new way after viewing my painting.
