A pair of lions

October 28th, 2015 No comments

12065925_10154317766513047_8201009167519091442_nI painted these lions as the plight of our planet’s lions became apparent to me. We have assumed that we would always have happy wild lions, but that is no longer the case. There are less of them all the time, and they need our help. After Cecil was murdered by an arrogant, law breaking, entitled hunter; I realized that lions need our help too. As with all of my paintings, the International Society of Endangered Cats is where all proceeds of this sale will go.
I stuck the paintings onto a couple of Italian pastry trays that I’ve lovingly saved for over 10 years, and made something even more beautiful. They are ready to hang, just peel the tape off the back.
If you care about lions, you might consider this purchase. A gift for a loved one born under the sign of Leo? Or just someone who loves cats. $125.00 buys them both. Thanks!

Down the rabbit hole

bunniesThis is a study for a project I am doing. What does it look like, inside a rabbit hole? Does it look cosy? Scary? Does it look like the rabbits like it?

Gator at sunrise

February 13th, 2015 1 comment

Alligators are iconic in the Florida wetlands. They are very large and nasty looking. While most of the time they don’t move at all, they can move quickly and silently. They are confident masters of their territory. And they don’t just live in the nature preserves. There are some living within the city limits of Tallahassee.
This guy is for sale, $150.00 plus postage takes him home. It measures 11″ x 14″ a standard size to frame. Remember the funds from the purchase of any of my paintings goes directly to endangered species conservation. You can help.

Not coyotes, these are wolves

January 1st, 2015 No comments

Another rare grey wolf was shot by a hunter. He thought it was a coyote, and shot before he noticed she had a radio collar (Link to article). Wolves are so very important for our ecosystem, and for that matter, so are coyotes. Bounties on predators might have been important during the days of Little House on the Prairie, but no more. These creatures are necessary to keep life in balance on the planet. They are beautiful children of God, and they have much to teach us.
Who speaks for wolf? I guess I do. As I mourn the loss of yet another wolf, another cougar, or bear, I shudder to think of a world where all our large wild animals are in zoos and that’s where we are heading. As the wicked witch of the west said, “what a world, what a world!” – I hope I am never a part of it.
This painting is for sale, the price is $175.00 and all of the proceeds goes to wildlife conservation. It measures 11″ x 14″

A regal terrier

November 17th, 2014 3 comments

While visiting this fox terrier’s family, I had chance to observe her when her human went into the kitchen. She posed, erect, as if she was ready to leap the moment she heard the right enticing sound. I was inspired by her posture and knew I had to paint her.
Not for sale.
