St. Otter and the Egg by ursulav St. Otter and the Egg by ursulav
This one's for a long-time reader, Skippy, who is goin' through a rough patch at the moment, so her friends (including the incomparable Reece) decided that what she needed was a painting of St. Otter and the Egg.

Prints are available for $10 and $20 plus shipping. A portion of all proceeds from sales will be donated to breast cancer research. Visit [link] or send a note to order!
