Rare Rabbit

Pregnant with Thought-in progress. 
Egg Tempera on panel.
24 x 30"
I've always wanted to paint a jack rabbit and finally got a moment to play around. The sides are a barrel cactus stencil I made to create a fun desert pattern.

New Commission-St. Francis

 St. Francis of Yorkville...ahem...Assisi
This commission was done for a patron in Illinois who created a beautiful environment in his yard and helped form a lively eco system that drew in chipmunks, squirrels, worms, frogs, ladybugs, cardinals, finches, orioles, woodpeckers, snakes, cats, and dogs which are all included in the icon.

The plants and animals come together to create a perfect location for St. Francis. This icon blends a traditionally stylized St. Francis in a contemporary and personalized environment. To see an enlarged version, click on the image.
