Here's the start of a 30" x 24" oil on linen of a Wolf. I'm learning a lot from a workshop I just attended with Johanne Mangi , a phenomanl artist, as well as instructor. The process:
Paintings by Marla Epstein. Wildlife, portraits, pets, landscapes, murals, painted tiles, gold leaf.

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.
