I got the reference photo for this painting when on a trip to a wildlife park in Oregon two years ago. She was so regal. And huge! Her evident power was very impressive in person.
I finished this one this past week 5-12-09.

Having a studio that is functional is extremely important to me. I put up this grid on my wall over the work table to get things OFF the table.
Everything needs to be close by and accessible. I am so pleased with this organization so I can get back to painting.

This is my effort for yesterday while painting with my friend, Johanne. We both painted the same still life and we each paint so differently. I like this one altho my orange looks more like a yellow tomato, I may fix that.

I got pictures of this little guy last year at a wildlife park and just now got a preliminary pastel done. We got to pet him while he took his bottle. I think I will try another with more colors in the background.
This one is 14"X11" on printmaking paper
done with Pan pastels, pastel pencils, and hard pastels
