"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
Each of my animal paintings is done on wood, which by it's very nature is unique - with it's 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!
