White Stag

This painting was actually finished about a month ago but it was on the easel and out the door heading to Wisconsin so fast that I almost forgot about it! The initial idea was to paint a white stag, technically it didn't turn out white but I think it did turn out with a great feel. A lucky guy is getting this painting as a gift from his girl this Christmas. She's sure that he'll love it and I'm always tickled to hear that! The painting is 12" x 24" acrylics and collage on gallery edged canvas.

New Work

Well it's been a while since I've posted here, I wish that I was better about it. BUT, I do have a just finished piece to show so that's a plus. Most people who follow my work know that I'm an avid animal lover and primarily my paintings are of wildlife, dogs and cats. But I also love people and am working on how to best paint them in my style. I've only painted a couple of people this way and this past weekend I got inspired to paint my favorite character from the Game of Thrones series. This is Tyrion, 12" x 12" acrylics on illustration board. There are several people who I plan on painting like Georgia O'keefe (my first huge artistic influence), Jane Goodall, Diane Fossey, Native Americans (my ancestors), and I'm sure many others. Lots of wonderful and colorful ideas to come!
