Here's a Lynx I was working on , put aside and now finished.
It's a 16 x 20 oil on linen. There's something about the chroma of this piece that speaks to me...here it is
I'm having some fun with this one.....colors.....light...dark...realism... suggestion.
It's a mixed media. Acrylic and oil on canvas 24 x 20...
May say this is done. I'll sit on it a few days. Let it resonate...view with a new day vision.
"Enjoying the Moment" a wolf named Gracie 30" x 24" oil on linen. Here's Gracie again. One of my favorite wolves to paint.
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.
These are both done. I am preparing for a show April 30 through May 29.
More details to follow.
"Our Natural World and Beyond" at the Fallbrook Art Center....in Fallbrook Ca.
These two are complete and may be at the show....
This is a revisit...a rebirth of a painting I painted once before....changes...time...experience...
20" x 24" oil on linen...I still want to tweak a few things so this is almost done.
"A New Beginning"
This Mexican Gray Wolf is 24" x 12" oil on linen. Inspiration : He resides at the Beardsley Zoo in Conn.
Jack Bradley allowed me to use his photograph as a reference.. Most of the time I take my own photos and use them as reference. As is in the case of my bear painting. That's Bruno a Grizzly that lives in Montana.
Here's one of the paintings I am currently working on. This a Mexican Gray wolf. He resides at the Beardsley zoo in in Conn... Many thanks to Jack Bradley for allowing the use of his wonderful photo.
20" x 16" oil on linen...more work to go.
I'm calling this done...of course I could nit pick and fix some stuff...but nothings perfect..I think it's better that way....Thank you Jack Beck for allowing the use of your wonderful photograph...and what a great workshop it was... 30" x 24" oil on linen..I'm thinking of calling it "Fire Mountain"..
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 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.
