San Bernardino County Museum "Art and the Natural World 28"

Only a few weeks away (painting time) the Wildlife Art Festival of the San Bernardino County Museum begins another weekend in celebration of Art and the Natural World.

My easel is full !   I have several pieces in different stages of completion.   I thought I would try some Ravens for this show along with another Mini Hawksbill Turtle.  I'll present two of these at the show.   

The larger 14" x 18" Bobcat painting might be a challenge to complete.  It's a full scene of rocks grasses with Mom and two kittens about 5 - 6 months of age.  Bobcats are a little time consuming given their beautifully camouflaged fur of subtle variations of color along the back.  With three of them almost full body to be painted  and framed in three weeks..... well, you get the idea.  I'll probably be burning some late hours!

Time permitting,  I have several reference photos of ideas just in case time permits maybe one or two more 4" x 4" paintings.

Of those images I've included a swan and some ever so cute juvenile skunks being at the top of the list.

Please mark your calendars for this event.  Stop by and say "Hello"!    This year I will be downstairs just behind the Featured Artist, left side of the isle.   Looking forward to seeing you!    :- )
