Animal Series

Hello Friends, 

The recent art pieces of animal paintings where inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo, while my daughter was visiting from Florida.  Her love for animals reminded me of my own love for them.

I had started the animal series a few years back but paused to create other series. Truth be told, animal paintings or drawings have been created by me since I was a child and feel it will continue as long as I am able to paint. 

Perhaps it's easier to love animals because we have them as pets and they shower us with unconditional love, but animals in nature hold their stand.  We can sense they mean no harm unless we threaten them. They are noble souls some humans unfortunately have taken advantage of in many ways and some are now critically endangered.

Many years ago I read a book about animal totems, their spirit power, and how they help us. I included some information on the animal spirit power when available in the description page for fun.
