"Okavango Flight" 26x42 oil
I love it after I post something but I hate to stop painting and think about passwords, jpegs and sizes of paintings.  And how far behind I am when I look in my folder of images that have not been shown here! Too many to write about. I'm just going to post as many as I can and if you have questions let me know!

Surveyor of All

This is my latest and my goal was to show perspective, physically and mentally. I want the viewer to be looking up at the Cheetah and to feel the wind and the vastness of the African plains.

The Sketch

Before I begin most of my larger paintings I start with a painted oil sketch. That way I can make all (most) of my mistakes here and hopefully correct them. I need to try to remember to post more in the future with the finished piece.  

"Madison Herd"

   18x24 oil. 

I'm still painting.......

"High Plains" 24x42 oil. Grizzly!

Night Moves

Original Oil, 24x36. This past spring I visited the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum. I was so inspired by the paintings of American who came before me, in particular, Frederic Remington. I knew I wanted to try a moon light painting and Zebras would be the perfect subject. I don't have any reference for Zebras under moonlight. My photography skills have not reached that level! I only have memories and, of course, the actual moon. It was interesting to see what moonlight really does to color and trying to portray it in an artistic experiment. It was a great challenge and I hope to do more.

High Rise

50x26 oil on linen. This is one of my centerpieces for Safari Club in Las Vegas. The perspective was one of my biggest challenges in this painting. I wanted the feeling of hight and distance.
