COVID-19 isolation put a magnifier our relationships with animal companions.

During this time painting creatures in my studio two things bubbled to the surface:
       a simmering desire to loosen up,
       and a sudden hunger for color.     I mean full color!

In order to encourage a looser style I chose a painting knife instead of a brush. And later, needing intensified enforcement, I troweled on the primer to texture the painting ground as well. Back to portfolio page.
