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.

It's been awhile since I've posted. Not because I haven't been productive just tortoise like in my posting.
So here's a commission I completed recently.........Moma Lil, Baby Sparkle and Daddy Dash..
Painted with oil on a cradled birchwood substrate.
Also the Los Angeles Zoo reached out to me to help in their conservation efforts so I sent this painting to them recently....

This is a 16' x 20" oil on clear gessoed linen. Started this one in the mid tone department and have been expanding out to more contrast. How vivid to make the colors...Do I gray them down...hmmmm
Good news is I'm having fun. So here it is so far a Lynx in the garden..pretty close to done.
A little more work:

This is a 16" x 12" oil on linen. The linen was gessoed with a clear gesso.
Another painting....Process continued.
Each painting I create furthers my understanding and abilities to get closer to what I want. What I want changes as I progress. Yes, Im enjoying the journey.
Here it is almost done..maybe one more day of attention.

I finished the first painting of 2021.
"Muddy Waters" 30" x 24" oil on linen.
I hope I've done Gracie justice. Gracie is a wolf I photographed at a wildlife photography workshop in Montana.
Perhaps this is a reflection of this new year.....hmm

Gracie is her name. I photographed her on a trip to Montana.
This is a 30" x 24" oil on linen.
New discoveries mixed with slight lingering doubt...Stronger currents of "I'll be Me"
Got to say I am enjoying the process. Still working on her.
