- My method: A great reference photo and a dot, a line, and a brushstroke ... - Soft Pastel
- - Digital Pen (Wacom Cintiq 24" Display Panel) This website is for anyone who appreciates wildlife and honors their protected status. These beautiful animals deserve our support. I hope these paintings will be motivational to develop support for these important issues. My creative interests are motivated by my personal Christian faith which enhances my belief in social change. I am inspired to express these beliefs through my soft pastel and digital paintings. The endangered and protected wildlife paintings I do are designed to provide updated information about the protective support currently underway by major wildlife conservation partners. The giant panda digital painting below my photo was done exclusively as a framed gift for my adult grandson. The giant panda has been one of his favorite animals throughout his life. I have a beautiful photo of him smiling broadly with the painting in his hands. All wildlife reference photos used for paintings on this website are from my personal photography or licensed through official photography sites such as Shutterstock and Pixabay.
