Wild Animal Portraits

I'm fascinated by all animals, but have a special affinity for wild creatures, both rare and not-so rare. In this series,  I've chosen to paint the subjects closely-cropped on a stark background to make it appear that the "space" of the canvas is encroaching upon them. For many of these species, human activity is affecting their survival in much the same way.  If you would like to purchase a print of one of these paintings, please go to the "buy prints" section of my website.
