Cherry Bomb the Grizzly Bear from LTB

Here's the painting I'm working on now.  Cherry Bomb is a Alaskan Silver tip Grizzly.  Albert her brother and Cherry Bomb were rescued from a life of uncertainty and not such good circumstances. When they were cubs they were kept as cub petting props. They were auctioned off after a short time and Cherry Bomb was declawed. They were moved quite often to zoo's etc.  Lions Tigers and Bears were asked to home them and they did. Both now live together happily in their forever home.
Here's Cherry Bomb.....she is still in progress, not done yet.

Rabbit Painting Oil on Canvas

Rennisance Rabbit all tucked in.  I really enjoy working with contrast between light and dark , chiaroscuro, Carrivagio style. This is an oil on canvas 15" x 30". I've been moving a lot more quickly,  painting with a lot more ease. So here it is....the star of the show Pepermint Pumpkin...
Tomorrow I will look at the painting with fresh eyes and see if there is more to be done.
Hmmm I already see an area of concern...

Next painting is raring to come out......
