Okay, perhaps that title applies to me at times…I most certainly would rather be in the studio (or pretty much anywhere) creating art than doing domestic chores! But this post is about some animal art I’ve been creating lately. I’ve had a blast with the Digital Pet Portraits but it’s also fun just to branch out and make artwork just for the sake of making it. Pure pleasure, if you will. These are some of the new “wildlife” images I’ve created during the winter months:
If they aren’t on the website yet, they will be soon. I’ve got a list of other animals I’d like to do soon but it seems like there are always more ideas than time to execute them! We will see what happens!
Last month I began showing some images of animals that I photographed during my trip out west. I thought I’d continue with those photos today. These are all the more “domestic” type animals – horses, sheep, cows – that I ran across as I traveled.
When I approached this field full of sheep I thought it was a hillside covered with scattered, bleached out rocks. Until I got close enough to hear all the bleating!
I also ran across a group of dogs that seemed to be guarding sheep on one of the dirt roads I traveled down. They were really excited to “herd” me along the road and make sure I didn’t bother their sheep.
I think, perhaps, they should have paid more attention to the sheep though – a short way down the road I found this guy wandering all by himself!
My next post of critter pictures will feature buffalo/bison, moose and elk – look for it soon!
