Ready to go!

 

It's officially done & ready to go off to it's new home! YAY! As glad as I am to be done with this painting I got so used to seeing this guy in my studio everyday! I forgot to post this earlier but the official dimensions are: 30 x 42 inches and is done in oils on stretched canvas.

 
 
 

In the works

 

My newest and latest painting I'm starting is going to be of one of my favorite animals, an ELEPHANT. I've done a few different variations of elephant artwork over the last year or so (that can be seen in some of the works I have completed). From a flat graphic interpretation, a bright patterned display and watercolor with pen variation, it's a subject that continues to evolve in my work. For this newest and latest custom piece, I have recently sketched out a rough outline. This elephant is going to be on a 30 x42 inch stretched canvas and will be done in oils. I'm planning on taking a realistic approach regarding the elephant's face and anatomy but adding in some slightly unusual colors for the skin, ears and trunk. Stay tuned for progression :)
