Looking for Love

 acrylic on 1/8" thick board, 8" x 8" Available

Peacocks are beautiful and for the longest time I have been wanting to paint one. Thank you to Ernie Griffith for the use of his beautiful reference photograph. I have also posted a progress shot of this painting. I used a primed Jack Richardson panel and allowed some of the warm ground to show through. 


It has been a wonderful summer. I got a new puppy and my time has been spent taking care of Lily the Whippet and painting.

Haliaeetus leucocephalus (Bald Eagle)


acrylic on 1/8" thick gessobord, 6" x 6" Available

“From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several at the time. Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.”
