Young Jackrabbit Drawing


I've been wanting to start working on sculptures of jackrabbits. I thought a good beginning would be to do some drawings. Drawing helps you see how every part relates. This is a young jackrabbit (sort of a teenager) that was hanging around our house this summer — 7.5 x 10 charcoal drawing on paper.

Meadowlark


I recently painted a 4 x 4 inch version of this meadowlark that sold. So this is a 6 x 6 inch. I am always surprised at what happens when I paint the same thing again. It can be very different from the first. A different moment in time creates something truly unique. This painting is available in my Etsy gallery.

Saw this jackrabbit as the sun was going down running toward me. The ears were picking up the full sunlight which turned them bright orange. This is a 6 x 6 oil painting available in my Etsy gallery. Click here to view on Etsy.

Lightning in Prairie Storm



Another painting of the storm that appeared over Pueblo, Colorado a few weeks ago and lasted into the evening. When the lightning flashed it created an orange glow and lit up the rain. This is a 12 x 12 gallery wrapped oil painting. It has 1.5 inch sides. The painting extends on to the sides. Available in my Etsy gallery. Click here to view on Etsy.

Evening Prairie Storm


There was an incredible storm cloud over Pueblo, Colorado a few weeks ago that inspired this painting. When the lightning inside the cloud flashed it would color the rain orange. Beautiful! I'm saving this for a show but if you are interested in purchasing please contact me by email here.
