These are the first ten of my new colorful animal series. Still some of my very favorites.

This was a commission piece for some close friends who both graduated from Angelo State University. 

It is always great when the client is very happy. 

Sure Thing

This one is easily one of my new favorites. The richness of the color makes me very happy. Right now it lives in our bedroom. 

Contention Series 2016

This is the last piece in my short lived Conflict Series. Very happy with how these guys turned out. 

Wild

This was the first piece i painted in this bright colorful style. I was instantly hooked. 

The Call
The Call

There is no question that this has been my most popular painting through the first 11 or 12. I keep waiting to see what will unseat the popular elk but so far not even a T-Rex can do it. 

Stripes

I found this piece to be quite difficult. There wasn't as much variant in color, the zebra is basically just black and white. It didn't turn out quite as bright as i had hoped. I will have to revisit the zebra at some point.

This massive gator was originally brighter than this, but when I finished him it just didn't seem to work. I went back over the rich color with various greens and blues and now i'm completely happy with him. The bright colors still peek through. 

Puma

This guy looks fierce. I'm completely happy with how he turned out and decided to keep the eyes a bit closer to their original color. I feel it really works. 

Snow Fox
Snow Fox

This picture of a fox leaping is really quite beautiful but the snow makes me think more of stars now than snow. I've toyed with the idea of renaming this one "Star Fox". 

The Bull

It was with this piece that i started using a greater mix of colors for the background. I love how the blue pops. My favorite part of this piece has to be the warm colors that split the painting in two. 

REX!

If any of my pieces challenged the popularity of the elk it had to be this guy. At 3'x4' he needs a sizable room, but he has to be my favorite piece at this point. I will certainly be painting more dinosaurs.

People kept requesting an owl, so i finally buckled down and gave it a shot. Thrilled with this piece and can't wait for it to find a home. 

Bullwinkle

After i painted the elk my wife suggested a moose. With every animal i painted she would suggest that a moose should be next. This is my first piece in this series for 2016 and my beautiful bride would be more than happy if it never sold and instead lived on the brick above our fireplace.
