Tropical Fish Painting, Florida Wildlife Painting, Palette Knife Painting.

This is another fish painting from my coral reef series.  Are you bored with this series yet?  I still have a few to post before moving on to another subject.

 Another fish painting.  Don't ask what kind of fish it is, I don't know.

I do know I am enjoying these palette knife paintings immensely.  I have been so intense about my brush work, that I had ignored the palette knife for months.  Now that I am working with it again, I am enjoying the freedom it brings.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

You Otter Love this Guy!, Wildlife Oil Painting, Small Oil Painting, SOLD


Otters are one of those cute little animals that we all love to feel have human characteristics.  The way they float on their backs, using their bellies for  a table.  I once read they link paws when they sleep, so they will not float away from each other.

Purchase here

This is for a 12x16x1.5" canvas giclee print of my original painting. It is one of my most popular prints and has been featured on Disney Channel.

 It will come to you wired and ready to hang.  Shipping is free.

Grey Squirrel Wildlife Oil Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, SOLD


Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!
