Friday Faves: Where The Wild Things Are

30 Sep

One of the many things George & I love about the Pacific Northwest is the wildlife.  In the 4 months we’ve been here, we’ve seen bear, elk, hoary marmots, sea lions, elephant seals, eagles, chipmunks and more deer than I can count.  This area of the country still feels incredibly wild and untamed.  So this week, I’m sharing all the wild artwork I’m, well, wild about lately.

The Beast by Shira Glezerman, oil on treated wood, 35.43x55.12

Untitled Stag With Chandelier by Miranda Skoczek, enamel and oil on canvas, 43.31x47.24

Sweaters by Jennifer Davis, acrylic, charcoal & graphite on panel, 12x16

Sheep Chaperone by Vicki Sawyer, acrylic on canvas, 14x11

Have a great weekend, Artsies!  Be sure to check out each of these artists’ websites for more beastly artwork!

    I instinctively recoil when I hear “animal art” but these are well done, creative pieces. Thanks.

      I usually feel the same way, Suzanne! But there are artists out there who are taking a typically tired genre and giving it fun and novel twists. Glad you liked these!
