a Fox.....

 I'm working on this 20" x 16" oil on linen of a Fox....Feeling the Bruno Liljefors influence.

The fox I met in Montana late summer a few years back. Photographed and observed.

Canadian Lynx in the making

 Just started this small oil on a cradled birchwood. It's a 9 x 12. Using both pallet knife and brush....think I'm gonna pop this one...go for some bold color...soon.









Oh and I painted these abstracts in between some wildlife painting .  They are 36" x 24" mixed media on canvas ....still wondering if and when the two will converge.

Jagged Descent, Coyote descending

 More work on this. I'm enjoying the process...Almost done.....real close.

Creating movement, life and energy with bits of color, scattered, short quick splashes .Contrasting bold with subtle nuances.
