Who speaks for wolf?

October 17th, 2014 2 comments

After watching an amazing video about wolves in the Yellowstone Park Ecosystem, I was moved to paint one. I will continue to speak for wolf as long as I am able. They exist on our planet for a reason. This video is proof of that.

Imperious Enza

Continuing experimentation with the 300 pound hand made cards my sister gave me. The experiment today was how fine can I go?
Enza was just sitting there sweetly but when I looked up, she moved her paw into this pose, which I caught.. I thought she looked kind of cute, she thought she needed a treat.. And so it goes with cat models. Wonder who’s going to get this post card?!

The widow lady

I love old photographs, even when they are faded and scratched, because they contain a wealth of information which can be coaxed out with patience and some paint.
This is Rachel Bower, the ancestor of a dear friend. I know nothing about her really, except that she lived to be old. There she sits, waiting, just waiting. For you to come to visit? She’s already cooked the meal. Come on in, you’re late!
