Young Whitetail SOLD

Young Whitetail 10x8 oil on canvas SOLD
This painting was my donation to the Aspen Wildlife Sanctuary's first online auction. This wonderful facility is world-renowned as a place where injured or orphaned wild animals are rescued and rehabilitated.  With the exception of a few "permanent residents" -- those who unfortunately can never again survive in the wild -- human interaction is kept to a minimum. Over the years, most of the Sanctuary's animals have been successfully returned to their natural habitat. The Aspen Wildlife Sanctuary relies solely on donations, and its volunteer staff often includes young people from around the world.  It's a worthwhile cause, run by people with a true compassion.  You can check out their website at:

Bliss 16x20 oil on canvas
Bliss is my attempt to capture that feeling of complete abandon when water lifts and supports us so completely and so effortlessly. 
After several months of being away from my easel, I'm pleased to be back painting some new pieces.  Hopefully, some of my blogging buddies are still checking in on me now and again.
Bliss, along with other new paintings will be on display this summer at Martins Framing and Gallery in Bracebridge.
