The big cat comes out of the darkness with an intense focus off at his prey. This piece was hand drawn drawn with vibrant colored sharpie markers.
All that can be seen of a golden colored bengal tiger is his face and one paw; as it lays on a branch looking directly at you. This piece was hand drawn with vibrant colored sharpie markers.

Mother with Pup
A profile view of a white wolf face; her golden colored pup nuzzling under her chin. This piece was hand painted on a round piece of seashell with nail-polish; total size is 2 inches.
The eyes are simultaneously calm and fierce as they stare straight at you with the most vibrant teal blue color you can imagine. The rest of the face is also visible - with its deep black nose and soft fluffy fur flowing out in shades of purple and blue - but the eyes have your complete attention. The original piece was done with wax crayons on textured watercolor paper.
Fiery Autumn colors of the evening sun show through layers of clouds. A spot of bright yellow blending outward into bright orange, then blending into darker coppery orange and browns. In stark silhouette contrast - a v formation of geese cross the skyline as they fly over a pond just barely reflecting the sunset colors through the brush. The original piece was done in Airbrush & Sharpie Markers.
White Raven Moon
You never see a raven flying at night - but this is a magical white raven flying above the clouds with a bright full moon behind her. The moonlight glows through her feathers so brightly; it's as if she cast a light of her own and the reflected light on the edges of the clouds is coming from her - not the moon. The original piece was done in acrylic & watercolor on silk.
The great spirit of the bald eagle comes into focus from the background of an old, yellowing American flag. This piece was hand drawn and painted with airbrush & hand-brush acrylic paint techniques.
The black bear of the Pacific Northwest. As the only bear that maintains the ability to climb trees into adulthood; his biggest message is to overcome obstacles. This bear has none to face right now as his fat body and coal black fur stands out against a dry grass and fir tree background. The original piece was painted over the top of watercolor & airbrush blended with solvent based paints.
The Great Provider
The polar bear is a powerful spirit guide and a formidable presence. In this piece he stands on the edge of the icy shore looking strait at you.his black eyes, nose and claws are a strong contrast to his snow white fur and pale blue water. There is only one bear; but the stillness of the water allows for a perfect reflection - making you see 2. The original piece was hand painted with acrylic over the top of a background of airbrushed solvent based paint.
It's not every day you see a bird in space; but this is a magical white raven. She is free to roam wherever the rest of the spirits take her... even into the vastness of space; where she flies past a gaseous nebula before heading back to the planet. The original piece was done with airbrush paints & colored sharpie Markers.
Painted War Pony
The front on view of a tribal warriors pony; looking directly at you with war paint on its face and feathers in its flowing mane. This piece was hand painted on a round piece of seashell with nail-polish; total size is 2 inches.
The proud and noble North American turkey in full display with wings down and a flared tail. Standing on the branch of a maple tree hosting vibrant red and orange leaves. The original piece was hand painted with watercolor paints and colored markers on heavy paper.
Don't Pet Me
"Im a marsupial - not a bear!" This adorable creature native only to Australia clings to a bare tree trunk looking at you with his soft alluring eyes. You want to reach out and pet the koalas soft fur - but don't. The original piece was hand drawn with oil acrylic crayons.
Brisk Morning Moose
It is cold and still. An out of focus sage brush field stretching out to blue hills in the distant background is the viewing stage for this young moose. He faces you; but he's looking past you into the distance... His ears are up and alert between his smooth paddles... But there is nothing to be concerned with... No danger here today. The original piece was done with airbrush & watercolor paints.
Not your ordinary substrate of canvas or paper... The face of a bengal tiger fits perfectly with his yellow eyes, black stripes and white bits of fur blending perfectly with the natural coppery colors of the autumn season maple leaf. The original piece was hand painted with acrylic paints on a natural maple leaf.
An ape mother siting contently; looking down upon her newborn as she cradles it in her arms. The original piece was hand painted on a round piece of seashell with nail-polish; total size is 2 inches.

What Just Happened?
The raccoons compulsion to wash food before eating it is all well and good unless they ran off with a clump of cotton candy... That's what happened in this drawing.

Original drawing done with ball point ink pen, colored pencil and sharpie markers.
Time to Rest
It's a damp overcast afternoon in the Pacific Northwest; but this bull elk doesn't seem to mind the weather as he lays on the forest floor; his head held tall and proud; showing off his impressive set of horns. Lots of grazing to do later - right now it's time to rest. Original drawing done with ball point ink pen, colored pencil and sharpie markers.
If ever there was a drawing left purely to the imagination for color - this is it. Yes it is a butterfly... Yes it is perched beautifully on a wide blooming flower. But what colors are there?
