"Precocious" 8x10 oil

"Sun and Prongs"

"Sun and Prongs" 5x7 oil
I always learn so much from these small studies. They're quick and fun and I can work out problems I've encountered in bigger paintings. I take a lot of notes when I'm working! My sketch books are valuable resources when I need to refresh my memory.

"Deadfall" 14x18 oil
This piece was a lot of fun! All that furry texture and the structure of the grizzly bear's face kept me interested and entertained throughout the painting process. I love it when I get excited about a painting as it progresses!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
