Back to the foxes...












Finally getting back to the fox pups...started doing detail work on the branches and woods, started adding the ferns - they're tough! I woke up this morning thinking about this painting...

All kinds of things going on today, won't make it to the mural until at least tomorrow, probably Sunday. While waiting for someone to pick up a painting this morning, I framed up my wolf feather and started the butterfly - I've had lots of requests for butterflies and I think they'll look great on feathers......
If anyone has any comments/ideas/critiques please do comment here - I need input from other people very much!

Large & Small



















From a feather to a mural....finished the feather, except for the framing of it. I discovered after I was finished that I had painted on the underside of it!!!! Meant to be I guess, it seemed right for the wolf.
Then a little more progress on the mural....

Worked on these fox pups a little more....next is to find the right droopy feather to put in his mouth.....then the ferns in the front....

And so it starts...





























Quite a productive morning.....finished the German Shepherd portrait (a commission), started a howling wolf feather, and got the beginnings started on the mural.....this is the most difficult of all of them, what a complex building!

Slowly but surely...











I am doing way too many things at once but it's hard to walk by the easel without doing something to these cuties....the last thing I add will be the feather, my favorite part of the whole thing!
