The FaunaFocus Free-For-All is an art competition that is open to all and is intended to foster community-based learning while celebrating successes and encouraging artists to improve from discipline and criteria.
September 2018’s Free-For-All featured the Virginia opossum.
Mahle Lynn created a whimsical, nearly achromatic piece drawing inspiration from the Virginia opossum’s black, white, and pink color scheme. This piece shows a young woman with opossum characteristics, front and center, surrounded by a background of opossums in all different poses. With another opossum perched on her shoulder, her affinity for the marsupial is clearly demonstrated.
