“Chance Encounter”

Chance EncounterWhile working on a 14 x 18 acrylic painting, nothing I did made me happy.  I really liked what I had done at the top of the painting but I could not seem to tie it into the bottom. The solution? Use the top of the painting rather than “toss” the entire canvas. I cut the 18 inches down to 11 inches and painted this white tail doe into the winter scene. “Chance Encounter” is 14 x 11, acrylic on canvas and available for purchase.

“Ole Tom” – Cougar

Ole TomWhile in Montana, I visited Animals of Montana for a photo shoot. This is “Ole Tom”, the resident cougar. He might be old, but he still had a lot of spunk! The painting is 9 x 12 inches, acrylic on canvas and is available for purchase.

“Shades of Gray”

Shade of Gray

It has been a very long time since I’ve posted anything here. I just finished this painting titled, “SHADES OF GRAY.” The painting is 12 x 16 acrylic on canvas, and is done in black and white on a black primed canvas. Only the wolf’s eyes are in color. I am excited about how it turned out. I have never painted on a black canvas before, but I really enjoyed how it developed.

Art of the Animal Kingdom XVIII

Art of the Animal Kingdom is an invitational juried exhibit hosted each year by the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont. Artists are invited by the Center to submit work, and the submissions are then juried by a guest artist into the show. Being invited doesn’t ensure an artist’s place in the exhibit.

Tasty Morsel

This was my first year to be invited and my painting, TASTY MORSEL was juried into the exhibit, which opened June 15th and will run through August 25, 2013. I am very honored to be a part of this prestigious exhibit.

“Morning Light at Red Rock”

RedRocksmall“Morning Light at Red Rock” is a 15 x 30 acrylic painting I finished recently.  While in Sedona, Arizona for an exhibit, I visited Red Rock State Park, but the view from outside the park early in the morning was the inspiration for the painting. The sun was just beginning to reveal the face of Cathedral Rock.
