Squonk by Carliihde

I was highly inspired to create an oil painting of the mysterious Squonk creature after reading its back story about a year ago. This beast has been "found" in the northern Hemlock forests of Pennsylvania. The official recorded tale of the Squonk dates back to the year 1910, in the book "Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods" by William T. Cox, but the folktales surrounding the creature are said to date back much further.   

This is what Wikepedia has to say about him... 

"The legend holds that the creature's skin is ill-fitting, being covered with warts and otherblemishes and that, because it is ashamed of its appearance, it hides from plain sight and spends much of its time weeping. Hunters who have attempted to catch squonks have found that the creature is capable of evading capture by dissolving completely into a pool of tears and bubbles when cornered. A certain J.P. Wentling is supposed to have coaxed one into a bag, which, while he was carrying it home, suddenly lightened. On inspection, he found that the bag contained only the liquid remains of the sad animal.

The "scientific name" of the Squonk, Lacrimacorpus dissolvens, comes from Latin words meaning "tear", "body", and "dissolve".

I hope you like him
