Sketches

I do a lot of drawings of animals in my sketchbook and then choose one for a series using different backgrounds and ideas of ways to incorporate it into a story. Here is the sketch for this one.

“Spring Stride”

The Bobcat spirit in the garden. The idea behind this painting is to show the magical properties of an animal spirit roaming my garden amidst the succulents and agaves. The Bobcat totem is a symbol of solitary power, alone in the garden and at one with the beauty and magic of the spring renewal. In the great swirling energy of the universe, you are never alone. You learn to rely on your ability to thrive and survive over time, to ride the waves of change and emerge transformed like the new flowers of Spring. This painting is about Patience and Creation.

Oil 24″ x 30″ $1950 framed $1800 unframed

The painting is an oil on linen, on one inch stretcher bars. A Roma black matte frame is available for $150.
