Valley Springs, California USA
In the early morning sunlight this furry fellow found a perfect place to take a rest. He settled in on his favorite branch to simply hang out. The sunlight was shining through the leaves to cause an array of warm colors on his fur. As he looks down, it seems as if he’s thinking, “Please, a guy is trying to rest here”. Hence, the title “Rest Stop”.
My art is inspired by my love of animals and nature. I hope to give the viewer an understanding of their souls, their beings and their purpose. I love to examine the texture, colors, shapes, drama of light and energy found in nature. The softness of their fur, the sparkle of their eyes, their hot breath on a cold morning, are what inspires me.
My animal art is created by applying several layers of colored pencil on suede mat board. Each piece can take up to 150 hours to create. When viewing my artwork, people often times say “I can’t believe this is done with Colored Pencils”.
