dachshund painting“Simon”

As I had mentioned in a previous post, I love to do portrait commissions.

I am currently working on this little painting of a Dachshund, done in a whimsical Folk art style, for an upcoming exhibition at my local art gallery. It is based on a wonderful dog my family owned called Simon, who loved to run outside and chase all sorts of creatures in his path. He was a very special pet, and this is my tribute to him.

I have done a few animal portraits in the past, and am always inspired to capture its spirit in a style that reflects its uniqueness. Here are some of them – and I do have a penchant for owls and cats! I do custom commissions for any kind of portrait, painting, tattoo design etc – please contact me if you are interested.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

I don’t think I’ve experienced so many firsts in one go, ever. First time in actual white fluffy snow, first time seeing a beaver munching grass on a river bank with his powerful tail trailing behind him, first time seeing a huge geothermal spring; a clear blue boiling pool of unfathomable depth with hot steam rupturing upwards from water filled fissures in the earth’s crust which is ambiently heated to boiling point by a large magma chamber deep below, misting your face and sunglasses, then suddenly it’s clear and cold again as a spring breeze from the snowy caps cools you down and dries the wet. First time seeing geysers spewing steam 30 metres into the sky. First time spying bison, elk and black bear. Pat and I reckon if you’re American and haven’t visited Yellowstone yet you should have your passport stripped and given to two very nice South Africans.
