  Animals

I love all kinds of animals, so it is no wonder it is one of my favorite and most challenging subjects to paint. Beyond rendering the outward textures of a creature, you must study its anatomy and be as accurate as possible in order to capture it and make it believable. Animals are always the most difficult to paint but also the most rewarding!

"Shandar" the White Tiger, along with 20 other paintings, were created to raise money for the American Zoological Society in order to save endangered species. This Oil became the centerpiece of the show and represents my love for animals.
