Having some fun...Camouflage Rabbit

 This is a mixed media, acrylic and oil on canvas   20" x 20"  fun.

I photographed this rabbit on my front yard and have been wanting to paint her for some time.

So here she is.   

Also I have Amber shellacked some birchwood for another day. I intend to use this substrate to make a few more paintings of this rabbit.

The year of the Tiger

"The Year of the Water Tiger begins on February 1st, 2022, and as with all Tiger years, it will prove to have many qualities that the Tiger possesses—dynamic, engaging, and unexpected".


I'm working on this 30" x 24" oil of a Tiger named Maverik...in celebration of his short sweet life. He was rescued off the streets of L.A as a cub and lived happily at Lion Tigers and Bears... He came to an unfortunate sudden end when accidentally he came in contact with another Tiger and...well he died.


So here it is the preliminary drawing and a few days worth of painting.

On the easel now....Lynx

 I almost gave up on this one, was ready to scrape the canvas clean...but something, somewhere inside me urged me to continue.   So I did and I sure am glad.

Still in the works. This is a 16" x 20" oil on linen.

Here it is so far:




Thinking about going larger again on my next adventure.
