I recently finished this Animals of Africa commission that is specific to the African animals at the Cincinnati Zoo. Now I wish I could go there and visit these animals! It features Giraffe, Hippo, Lesser Kudu, Lion, Meerkat, Ostrich, Painted Dog, and Ruppell's Vulture. I will shortly be listing some magnets featuring these animals in my shop as well.
I was commissioned to do Kangaroo and Tree Kangaroo Field Guide paintings. I posted the Kangaroo guide last week, and happy to say I have now finished the Tree Kangaroos. It was very difficult to find information or pictures on some of them- some species have been discovered fairly recently, or are threatened by very low numbers and living in remote parts of Australia, Papua New Guinea, and islands. I learned a lot but there is much left to learn. This is as accurate as I could make it from my research, but probably not 100%!
I was commissioned to do Field Guide paintings for Kangaroos and Tree Kangaroos. Here are the finished Kangaroos! Prints will be coming. Right now I'm trying to get the Tree Kangaroos completed. They are a lot harder, elusive creatures with little info available for some- but also incredibly cute! I have 8 out of 12 done, so back to work...!
I've been busy with commissions in the new year. The first was a remake of a painting I did in 2014 that is a family portrait of sorts. The animals in the painting represent the Roberts family. I love this idea and was happy to paint it again for them with the addition of a bunny rabbit. Now I am working on a Corvids guide, which is a commission but will also be offered as an open edition print. Corvids are super smart birds like crows and jays. I'm also working on a few more commissions that are still under...
This is a commission I did of a Great Gray Owl. This was to be a Christmas gift so I waited a while to post it. I sure hope it was loved!
