Some of these paintings are very old, and a few are relatively new works I did in the last few years. I am primarily interested in wildlife art, but do occassionly paint landscapes.Thanks for viewing and hope those who do enjoy.Whonu

I have always been enthusiastic about my pursuit of watching and painting wild animals and birds. I love the out door life and to fish, especially. Being in the outdoors has always inspired me to write and paint of my experiences. It is who I am, and a vital part of my life. I also am supportive of he preservation of our animals and all living things and have written about these a lot on my hub pages. The creatures of the wild are a gift that should be preserved and not wrongfully harmed in any way.

Hello, Olde Cashmere shared this and I'm happy he did. I love your art work of these birds and animals....very lovely....you are talented!

Thanks,oceansider,I enjoy painting the wild and sometimes think that it is truly the only way to capture their spirit without harming them. I never feel as though I've given each creature painted, real justice in their wonderful beauty and essences. I can fly, when I paint a bird, and roam the wide forests, as the wild animals I try to capture in their free spirits there.

Beautiful work and lovely use of colour, especially where it is out of the ordinary. Art is one fo God's blessings that not many people can claim to have. Hope to see more of your charming work.

PS

I am partial to owls and you've done an excellent job. Their faces are very expressive.

Thanks,Garifalla, I always look at my work days later after I have finished, and still am unsatisfied. I want to capture a spirit that is often very illusive.

Thank you so very much,Thelma, the wild animals and birds of this earth, are all my favorite subjects to paint and I have always tried in capturing the essences of their wild spirits, yet feel that I have failed often times in conveying how wonderful they all truly are.

whonunuwho, Your artwork is gorgeous. Someday I am going to photograph my oil paintings and have a showing here at the hub! I would especially like for you to see the owl painting I've done. I can see how much you love wildlife, because your paintings show your great care and love in creating each piece. As I scanned down the gallery of your work, I kept thinking "oh, that's my favorite" and then I'd see the next and feel the same. They are all so distinctively yours and each one so beautiful, I could never choose a favorite. Thank you so much for sharing your work, whonunuwho. It is a magnificent collection of art.
