Original and unique wildlife paintings

My Fine art

Original and unique  Wildlife  paintings. The one thing I have strived for and has been my passion for many years. I started doing art shows around 2004 and found it encouraged me to really step up my work. Because of this I started producing a lot more paintings. This was positive part of getting into shows. On the other hand , I wasn’t really  impressed by the whole thing .The work and cost of getting to the location, setting up the show and waiting for people to meander through was mind numbing. Then there was the dismantling, don’t get me started! Galleries were disappointing as well. It seems you have to know someone to get in. I love to paint and didn’t want the fact that the selling aspect turned me off.

As a graduate of Ringling School of Art , class of 1972, I aimed my sites originally at being a commercial artist and illustrator. I’m not sorry that I took that direction.After almost 50 succesful years in the business of Illustrating for rather large companies I retired. Now I’m enjoying my free time painting. Selling original Wildlife art in todays market can be Challenging especially on line. One must be savvy to the workings of the website and how to get there work to the top of googles list.

Todays market seems to steer me in the direction of prints over original paintings. I’m hoping to reach the point of selling more Original and unique wild life paintings. Most often I paint in oils, acrylic, gouache and watercolor. I also  enjoy just sketching and color pencil. Working on clay-board is very enjoyable especially with acrylic. I have also enjoyed working on canvas. It has a special give that you feel when painting.

Admittedly, a lot of  my Original and unique wild life paintings are birds but I have branched out to many other animals. I just finished two bunnies called marsh bunny love. It was done on clay-board in acrylic. Giving humorous names to my paintings is one of my hallmarks . As I’m painting and getting very attached , the name just comes to me. When you go to my website , Wildlife Painting       look under fine art and browse around. Be sure to leave me a comment so I know you were there . I’m trying to update regularly to keep things interesting . My wife, who is also a wildlife artist, has always inspired me and encouraged me to paint more wildlife. Please visit her at

    Tony, your work is amazing! God has indeed blessed you, and it shows in your pieces. The detail, colours and subjects that you choose brings life to your work. It reminds me of a photograph I saw once. Just an old, rusty, tin can abandoned on the side of the road. Beautiful! Keep up the good work! -A
