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.

Lil, Sparkle and Dash

 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..

Also the Los Angeles Zoo reached out to me to help in their conservation efforts so I sent this painting to them recently....

Lynx Painting

 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

A little more work:

New tittle " Muddy Waters...Gracie the wolf

 I finished the first painting of 2021.
