McDowell Creek 16" x 20" acrylic $3800
I was inspired to paint this from a family hike we took in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Icy runoff plunges over the falls creating a misty environment perfect for moss to grow on the rocks below. The path the water takes between the rocks also leads viewers' eyes through the painting and continually back to the falls.
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
