Scribe on Masada
A friend of mine and I were on Masada when we came upon a room that was somewhat out of context with Oil on canvas-the rest of the top of the mountain. we were invited in and he graciously wrote our names on a parchment and proceeded his work on the torah. He did a line in my friends honor and one in mine. I just had to do a painting of him
sketch on computer-Saturday Morning services
A group of my very good friends reading the torah on the sabbath
painted on the computer- I found a lot of beauty in this bird. They may be thought of as disgusting but I see them as a work of art.All G-ds creatures are
Waiting for a twofer
Gouache on clay board-If you look closely you will see a small lady bug that the frog has his eye on. he just doesn't see the bird that is going to get a two for one.
Oil on canvas-Something I did a long time ago and could never bring myself to sell it.
Wait here Ill get it.
Acrylic on clay board- Most of my paintings have a humorous title . this one as you can see has the one holding back the other as he reaches for the little crab intending to share Im sure.
Thelma J and friend
Gouache on clay board-When My Mom was alive she was known to say "when I die I want come back as a blue j" she said they don't take any guff from anyone. Her name was thelma J so it was only natural.
Gouache on clay board- three birds on a log were a challenge but well worth it. I have sold more prints of this than any other.
I saw him first
Oil on canvas -I found these three in a rehabilitation complex in christmas florida. they were in a cage and I asked if I could just stick my head in long enough to take a picture. I put them in the woods where they look better, don't you think?
Family day on lake lilly
Acrylic on clay board- I found this family of ducks on lake Lilly. I had to move things around a little for composition but I think I ended up with a happy family
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.
