Big Cats
Cats are one of my favorite subjects to paint. I volunteered for 2 years at an exotic feline breeding compound in CA and learned so much from them. The fur, eyes an attitude just amazes me and excites me when I see all of this evolving.
Recently I had the pleasure of taking my first trip to Kenya to view and photograph the wildlife. I intend to return soon.

African Wildlife
Having always wanted to paint African animals,  I first wanted to see them in their natural habitat.  I now have the pleasure to  paint from my personal experience in Kenya. I have enough reference to last forever but that won't stop me from returning for more & I'm anxious to paint some of the different species I observed.

This was taken about 1986 at the Endangered Feline Breeding Compound where I cared and lead tours for the endangered cats. I'm holding a cat that had been de-clawed and de-fanged so it couldn't eat or tear up someone's furniture; they then decided they didn't want it.
