Art Gone Wild 2018 Final Pieces

I had a goal to paint five portraits, but in the end (with my busy work schedule), I only had time for four canvases. For a fun personal challenge, I went with an all bird theme, and I must say that my first time painting birds has me absolutley in love with the creatures. I had so much fun getting to know them and their unique behaviors and personalities! I’m excited to share my pieces for my second year as an Art Gone Wild artist for Zoo Atlanta!

Working as fast and as hard as I can to finish my pieces for the Art Gone Wild show at Zoo Atlanta! Looks like I will have 4 when it is all said and done!

Art Gone Wild 2018 is Underway!

This is my second year being accepted into the annual fundraising art show for Zoo Atlanta. Paint out week was a success was so much fun! Here are some of my sketches and illustrations that have already been sold in the clothesline sale!

Some Illustrations

I have been so busy at work, but definitely trying to keep squeezing in some illustrations in the art journal. Here is my Vanessa (my cat), a quick self-portrait, and a sketch of my friend Mel in costume.

Art Gone Wild @ Zoo Atlanta

The Art Gone Wild Fundraiser took place over the weekend kicking off with an art show on Friday night, and a two day sale over the weekend. It was such a joy to be a part of this event, and I can’t wait for next year as I hope to be selected as an artist for Zoo Atlanta again!
