CHEETAHS

CHEETAHS

14" x 18" Acrylic on Canvas

Someone gave me a photo of this Cheetah. and Jaguar. This is unusual because I take my own photos as reference. I painted on clayboard which was new to me. In both the Cheetah and Jaguar painting I used a technique of painting square by square. I would tape off a small section on my reference material and do the same on my canvas and paint what I saw in that small section on my reference material.

David L Witt gave me permission to use his photograph for reference taken in the Santa Fe National Forest, Pecos Wilderness, in July mid-afternoon, clear sky and Engleman Spruce Trees in the background. 

Cutthroat Trout

16” x 20” Acrylic on Canvas SOLD

I was fascinated by the reflections and wanted to capture them using Acrylic paint.

DOG WITH WALLPAPER

DOG WITH WALLPAPER

30" x 48" Acrylic on Canvas

My original idea was to paint a reflection on the wallpaper of an opened birdcage and a feather lying on the ground with the French pointer staring up at the cage but opted for the outlet instead.

Painting animals is about sharing the love and compassion I have for all living creatures. Not wanting to be constrained by the limitations of repeatedly painting the same subject matter, I paint what inspires me at the moment. This piece differs from my other paintings due to the irony of the outlet and cord juxtaposing the formality of the wallpaper and the dog. The reference for this painting was inspired by my friend’s French Pointer and the wallpaper from a bathroom in a cottage on Long Island, NY. where I lived.
