“Sneaky Fox” by Skye Elizabeth Wieland

“Sneaky Fox”
sneakyfox

Notes:
Sneaky Fox is a mixed media artwork that was created with oil pastels and oil paints on cartridge paper with black gesso base. Sneaky Fox was inspired by my current interest in foxes and was the best work that came out of a series of commissioned pastels that I worked on.

If you liked my painting of Sneaky Fox, please don’t hesitate to visit my online store at RedBubble.com to purchase prints, clothing or other apparel with this design.

Notes from the Artist:
My name is Darryl Thomas and I am a 68 year old veteran and a stroke victim.
I was a professional musician for almost 50 years. During that time I managed to draw something every once-in-a-while until the last 10 years before an illness which devastated my beloved career. After the initial shock, I bought my second computer
and began teaching myself how to use certain art programs to produce the work I was doing before with brushes and paint, and create art work even more satisfying and more challenging than anything I had ever imagined before. The possibilities are absolutely endless. Not to mention cutting expenses of paint; brushes, and canvas; just to name a few.

Davy Crockett Lake painting 2

November Morning 2

Notes from the Artist:
I am basically a self-taught artist who began drawing and painting at the age of 12. While most of my work is done on a commission basis, I do find time to paint the things I love. Flowers, landscapes, cats, are all a part of my life and my art. My work has been featured on greeting cards and posters. I love drawing and painting older homes, especailly old homeplaces that have character and family history.

Featured Artist: Georgia Doyle

Notes from the Artist: I started seriously drawing when I was 13 back in the late 1970’s. I started painting in oils at the age of 14. I am self taught, with instruction from my dad who painted a little and I got to be a part of an art painting group in the late 1980’s for about 6 months.
I mainly paint or draw portraits, but I do like to venture off into fantasy paintings too. I do not paint just one genre, I jump around from Native American Indians, to portraits of dolls or animals..
