Perhaps the most endangered 'big cat' in the world, the Amur leopard ranges in the valley along the Amur River—which trails the border of China and Russia. This is an amazing animal from Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, IL. It was a joy to paint. After studying every inch of this cat, I am in awe of its beauty. The spots in themselves are each unique, none are the same. I can't wait to study another animal. So much to choose from.
It was fun to paint something a bit different, for the past month or so I have been painting animals. Animals are probably my favorite subject to paint, but it is refreshing to change it up a bit. This oak tree is one of the many beautiful trees my family and I saw this fall at Danada Equestrian Center in Wheaton IL.
This is a painting of my Dog and my Son. Ever since my son came home from the hospital my dog has been very protective of him. When he was a newborn he was always by his side. My son is already 5 years old. I am amazed at how quickly time has gone by.
