Animal Paintings

The inspiration for the large scale animal drawings is DREAMS.

For most of my life I’ve had frequent dreams with animals, and not necessarily local fauna, but more iconic figures – lions, tigers, (and bears!), and all kinds of horses and bulls and whales and the like.

So I paint them.

The surfaces I’m working with are sometimes canvas, but a number of them are on mylar or terraskin – the tiger to the right and the blue bull left above are on mylar, the fox faces above and below are on Terraskin. Both surfaces I find support a kind of drawing heavy painting style, while the canvases tend to be (though not always) filled right to the edges with paint.
