Fleece or Pasture

Fleece or Pasture

I just finished up a week long spring break. I managed to get some unattended projects done around the house, but more importantly I finished up 3 paintings and got a few others started. I’m trying to be more prolific with my painting and art-making. I’ve instituted some production goals and it’s been working out great. I have been painting almost everyday and finally finished this big painting of a ram, “Fleece or Pasture”. It’s oil on wood panel and measures 48×32″. Laying out these goals and sticking to them has allowed me to hone in on my technique, skills and subject matter. Lots of work planned for this year! So with that being said, it’s time to get back to the studio – I hope you all are enjoying the spring so far.

Until the next 30 moons…

I grew up with a veterinarian as a father and an artist as a mother. Having a father as a veterinarian instilled in me a deep affinity for animals. All the animal companions we took in were rejects from Dad’s practice whom clients had left behind.

Helping out at my father’s practice gave me direct behind-the-scenes access into the lives of animals on a daily basis. It is hard to pinpoint an exact time, but I was very young when I slowly realized that animals were not all that different than humans. Time and time again I saw various cats and dogs expressing emotion and feeling beyond basic instinct. Witnessing both happy moments and not so happy moments between owners and pets made me realize the massive impact animals have on humans and vice versa. Some call it energy. Some call it spirit. But we can all agree that there is something connecting us all. To paraphrase: We are not animal beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having an animal experience.
