"When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return them to what is already theirs, for man cannot give wild animals freedom, they can only take it away." - Jacques Cousteau
Most of my animal paintings are done on wood, which by its very nature is unique - with its variety of grains, colors, and textures. There is warmth and life to these portraits as the animal's eyes look into your soul. Of every subject I paint, animals are my all-time favorite. They inspire me more than anything!
All animals, whether big or small, have their own grace and dignity. Each of these paintings is done with respect, love, and appreciation for ANIMALS!
