Grizzly Family in Acrylic

This is a later small painting (I tend to work small 3.5 x 2.5 up to about 11 x 14) of grizzlies. Mama bear and cubs crossing a primitive road.

This is an 8 x 10, and is available for sale. Thanks for looking, and any comments welcome.

Grizzly Revisited.

This is a 9 x 12 acrylic in a private collection. I used an odd technique for this one, because I modeled the whole thing in heavy titanium white paint and then glazed colors in. I kinda think it worked!  What do you think?


Maybe a detail shot or two:

More grizzlies later . . . . .

Texas Longhorn

This is a small acrylic of a Texas Longhorn steer. I enjoy just playing with the colors, both in the background and main image. I haven't painted cattle much, but plan to do more.

Thanks for looking! And I appreciate any comments, as well.

Our Watcher

This is Jet, our Airedale. He's not a show dog, but is all we want in a companion and "watcher." He's a purebred, and our third Airedale over the years. We've enjoyed Dobermans and Welch Terriers also, but right now Jet is our only dog. He's a great one, though, and we enjoy watching him play with Patches, our mini wethered goat. He also keeps the ATVers who go up and down our alley on their guard. He loves to raise dust in an effort to get out and 'greet' them, lol!

Here is another picture taken the day we brought him home:

Patches wanted to show him who was boss, and our little Welsh Terrier (Jake, who passed last January) just wasn't interested at all.

Jet now is bigger that Patches, but they get along well.

Grumpy Kitty

This is a colored pencil, about 9 x 12. I had a hard time thinking of a good title for this one, and finally settled on "Grumpy Kitty." The working title was "Me and My Friends are Sad," but I opted for the shorter name.

I'm glad to hear any comments! And thanks for looking.

First Comments

This is a colored pencil piece called Dappled Nap, Mexican Wolf. It's about 8 x 10, from a photo I took at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.

I've been following blogs, and this is my first posting of my own. I will post new drawings and paintings, along with photos of things that interest me. Stay tuned for more.
