Howling Wolf

I have always liked wolves. This painting shows a cute little wolf pup learning to howl just like all of the older wolves around him. I discovered a used book on wolves with terrific photos at a local  Barnes and Noble store. So I bought it and started sketching. Ink and watercolor.

Colored Fish

During the holidays, I did some playing with underwater scenes. I did two or three under-the-water paintings where I used maskoid then added layers of washes. The fish who are swimming appear to have something in sight. These were drawn and painted with no real fish in mind--it's easier that way. There are times when I play only--this was one of those times. Enjoy my colorful, experimental creation. Ink and watercolor.

A Cat Named Gustov

I do not draw and paint cats very often, but before Christmas I got the bug to do some of them. This one, named Gustov, is not puzzled but his stare is intense. I drew himt from a photo because I don't have a cat that would stand still long enough for me to draw. It seems I just get the bug to do certain subjects for some reason--wolves (I love them), underwater scenes, cats, dogs--then I won't do those subjects for a long time. After doing commissions (which puts the pressure on any artist), it's nice to draw whatever I want to draw. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

After The Catch

A National Football League wide receiver catches the football and looks down field as he heads towards the opponents goal line. These receivers are fluid and fast and have the ability to catch the football while preparing for a crushing tackle from the other team. Shown here is an Arizona Cardinal. Football is a violent, brutal game watched by thousands of sports fans throughout the USA. The playoffs are here and the march to the Super Bowl is on. Ink and watercolor.
