I love animals and frankly can’t understand anyone who doesn’t, or who thinks it’s OK to destroy more and more of their habitat to make way for mines, shopping malls, agriculture to feed livestock (why don’t we just eat the plants ourselves?). Yes, I’m a vegetarian and I do my best to avoid animal derived products, including in my art supplies.

A number of these paintings have been donated to animal charities to help with their fundraising. Several others are memorial portraits, and some were painted for specific people who love the animal depicted. Animal paintings have a way of making people happy, and that’s a pretty good reason to keep doing them.
