"Winter's Watch"


This is my newest painting in my wolf series. Since winter is my favorite time of year, and I love the snow, I wanted that to be the backdrop for this Timber Wolf painting. This painting was a larger format than my daily paintings so it took significantly longer for me to complete. The layering in of hair is time consuming, but I love it!

"Predator Eyes"

Painting this wolf was comfortable for me because I have painted many dog portraits over the years. The difference between painting a wolf rather than a dog is the intense eye color and the majesty that a wolf exudes. I have been able to spend some time around wolves and that has given me the ability to see more than just what a photograph can capture.
