How I Finished Up Cabela, The Hunting Dog

Cabela in the Hunting Blind

Time-lapse of  Cabela Part II

When I paint in pastels, I usually start with the background (which incidentally is the opposite of how I paint in oils). You’ll find the video of the background process here.

The Things We Treasure

I love painting the true treasures of our lives – sometimes it is people and sometimes it is a very special animal. Cabela is the quintessential example of a loyal dog worthy of immortalization.

Again, her story and the time-lapse of the beginning of the painting is here.

I couldn’t be happier with how this painting turned out.
