ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
I want to tell the viewer a story and share my experience with them. In the translation from nature to canvas, I seek to discover nature's truth and give life to a painted image by understanding the rhythms and pulses behind the appearances and the best is the feeling of being an integral part of it all. I am most successful with a painting, if I can evoke an emotional response in the viewer.
The animals I paint all in oil are wild, extinct or slaughtered. I try to be their voice to help make a difference.
To open the eyes and stir the conscience of people: Bringing awareness to what is happening to the innocent. These animals have families and friends as we do they make close bonds with their young.
