From Mountain Lions to Mountain Trails…

View of The Grand Tetons

This spring and summer has been another busy period for me, but one of immense satisfaction in regards to my painting. While commission work has been constant, I’ve also taken a good bit of time to continue honing my wildlife subjects and the new looser approach I take in portraying them. The images below reflect some of my personal favorite images from the last few month’s work.

Mr. Doug Jennings – 18 x 24 Oil on Panel – Commission

This is an oil portrait of Doug Jennings, who retired this year as Head of School with Park Tudor, a private school system in my home town of Indianapolis, IN. The painting was commissioned in early Spring of this year, and completed in time for Mr. Jennings’ retirement ceremony in June.

Greenacres Art Center

I was honored this year to have received an invitation to exhibit with the prestigious Greenacres Foundation, in Cincinnati, OH. Following an extraordinarily successful exhibition with the international Society of Animal Artists, Greenacres is now hosting solo exhibitions with regional artists of national and international repute. The facility and location turned out to be of the highest caliber with wonderful organizers, and overwhelming community support. I was delighted to have had the opportunity to exhibit there.

I was also lucky enough to spend some time in Jackson, WY just recently. Jackson has become a Mecha for wildlife artists and collectors from abroad, with numerous fine art galleries representing some of the finest Wildlife Art, Landscape, and American Western art anywhere in world. And then, of course, there’s the Grand Tetons – doesn’t get much better for someone who paints imagery of nature. Like they say, it’s a dirty job, but…well, you know the rest.

And finally…a few of my recent Wildlife Oil Paintings:

Dappled – 12 x 16 Oil on Panel – $2,500

Dining In the Shallows – 18 x 24 Oil on Panel – $4,750
