This is a busy time of year for most artists.  We are entering shows and painting for coming shows and submitting portfolios to galleries in hopes of winning the favor of a judge or gallery owner.  The painting today is of an elk for the Elk Foundation.  With each new animal I paint there is a learning curve.  The nuance of the facial features is so different with each animal and the Elk was a mighty big boy to paint.  Please enjoy "A Painting Day".

I agree with Linda. It is beautifully painted and I love the look in his eye.
