Wolves

Hello!

While we were on vacation a few weeks ago, we visited the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve, to see their resident wolf pack and rescued moose. It was fun watching their 4 wolf pups playing!

Enjoy the pictures!

Rainforest Dragon

Hello!

I finished another oil painting! Not much to say about it, I worked on it to relieve stress, and had a lot of fun with the colours! Oil Paints on an 8x10in Canvas, available in various forms at my shop!

I am just wrapping up my current job! I was illustrating a book that educates kids on a rare genetic disorder. I had a lot of fun working on it, and if I get permission I will post some pages here! I have a few possible jobs lined up to chase after next, murals, books, etc. I also might try to sell at a couple local comic conventions! A lot of work and money to plan out but HOPEFULLY I can make some money on it!

More Supernatural fanart coming soon!

Thank you for looking!
