I began painting animals partly for the want of something different, partly to complete a circle of jests regarding pink elephants. As it turned out, the joke was on me, as beasts and birds of all sorts caught my muse up in their stampede and proceeded to populate my gallery. I've painted a lot of animals over the years--consider these my personal favorites and greatest hits!
