Shrew When I worked as an archaeologist, I would often come to the excavation site in the morning to discover a shrew or two in my excavation unit (pit). I would put a long tree branch into the pit, long enough to allow the shrews to climb out. When I returned a few minutes later, the shrews were always gone. It was the easiest way to to help them out and the least distressful for all involved. This was part of my small animals' illustrations series. 10 pieces were created in this series of which one was stolen, and I gave two away. The remaining 7 pieces have been uploaded to my portfolio website. These proved popular with art directors. I chose a 19th Century etching plate style for all of these animal series pieces.
