"Patience" Original oil painting Unframed 6" X 6"
I love painting animals! When I first picked up a brush, my strongest desire for my art was to become a wildlife artist. Landscapes were in there somewhere, but wildlife was my "first love" in painting. I worked at all kinds of animals in that first year, mostly big jungle cats and African wildlife. Their postures and their eyes really enchanted me.
One year later, under duress, I took a portrait workshop with Frank Covino. Seven workshops later, I could not, and still cannot get enough of portraits. I seem to have been blind-sided and have not been able to shake the love of a face. However, faces on animals still count!
