“The Hunt Begins” Juried Into IAA 2015 Wildlife Art Show

Canada Lynx

The Hunt Begins

The Hunt Begins” has been awarded 2nd Place – Water Media at the Irving Art Association’s 2015 Juried Wildlife and Domestic Animal Art Exhibit in Irving, Texas.

This is one of my larger paintings – 18 x 24 inches – and features a Canada Lynx in a winter scene. The lynx wasn’t the most time-consuming part of this painting – it was actually the snow! There is a lot of snow! I photographed the lynx at Animals of Montana while there for a workshop in 2000.

The show will feature wild and domestic animals in oil, water media, pastel, pencil, and photography. Many thanks to juror, Helen Bailey, for selecting my work for an award!

The show opens on August 30th at the Association’s gallery, Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, 1975 Puritan Dr. Irving TX 75062 with a reception and awards ceremony on September 13th from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. To see a preview of the exhibit, visit Irving Art Association’s blog by clicking here.  To learn more about juror Helen Bailey, you can visit her website by clicking here

“September Song”

September Song

My final painting before leaving for SEWE, “September Song” is a 14 x 18 acrylic on canvas. I had the privilege of seeing these magnificent animals in both Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National Park. But I can also see them closer to home at Wildlife Prairie State Park in Central Illinois.
