Wildlife Paintings
Most of the pieces are done with acrylics or oils
Mix Media/Icons
Parts of a painting may be first manipulated on the computer, then printed on photo rag paper with archival inks. Other times origami paper, gold leaf, permanent markers or other products such as pearl pigments or graphite may be added.
Having your own photographic reference for your paintings is part of being a wildlife painter. Of course, half the fun is getting those shots that will inspire the next painting. My early love of photography makes this task an immense and enjoyable part of my day.
Lately, I have been using my ability to paint realistically in another area. While teaching art, I often painted murals and backgrounds for the yearly plays and that skill has found me now being hired to paint murals for clients. Sometimes it gets to be wildlife and other times it is the clients choice. The challenge is in the designing and painting something I might not have thought about doing. By accepting new challenges, I learn to study light, reflections and color in different situations and increase my skills and knowledge.
