A family of River Otters is enjoying its favorite winter sport, hurling their sleek bodies down a slippery snow slide. The parents are teaching the youngster; it's the wide-eyed pup's first try. Dad is in full flight midway down the slope; Mom has already flipped onto her back, laughing, at the bottom.
When I lived in Alaska, I loved watching these lithe animals at play. In my stylized version, I wanted to show Mom and Dad's sheer joy and the pup's excited but fearful anticipation.
The otters are patinaed in a highly polished sienna bronze, while the cantilevered slide and its base are patinaed to resemble snow-covered rock.
