This leopard was just woken from his nap and is looking at you. The bushes are hiding snakes and the lizard is climbing the tree.
This is my 3rd in a month long project of 30 paintings in 30 days started by Leslie Saeta. I continue to make paintings influenced by the style of Henri Rousseau. I have 3 large ones and a small one inked in that I am hoping to paint during over the month of January plus several ideas percolating in my head.
This painting is 5 by 7 and is Ink and Watercolor on Aqua Board that I varnish and place in a shadow box. SOLD
Pard On Me
Those of you who know the book, The Medieval Bestiary will recognize the Pard. Pards were feline animals with spotted coats that were known to be extremely fast, considered as fast as cheetahs. Pards would mate with Lions and have offspring that were Leopards. This is another one of my newer Henri Rousseau influenced paintings. I am working on 2 more at the moment.
This painting is done in ink and watercolor on Aqua Board and is 5″ by 7″. It is framed in a black shadow box frame and is for sale for $250. To purchase click the PayPal link below.
It will be on display at The Art Stable Gallery Westport starting Saturday unless it finds a home sooner.
Here is hoping you can come and meet the artists at our Holiday Open House on Sunday November 18th, 2012 from 2-5PM. It should be a lovely afternoon to browse the gallery and have a glass or two of cheer.
