The Chicago freezing temperatures have closed where I work for the past two days so I have been in the studio catching up on some painting.
I started this painting from a photo of mine of Hope, one of the Mexican grey wolves from Brookfield Zoo. Wolves have always been some of my favorite animals to draw and paint and now that I have been able to get some wonderful shots of Brookfields pack, I have been creating sketches, illustrations, and paintings this past year. I am hoping that over the next week I can finish this painting so I can move onto the next piece that has to be finished. Hopefully, my little helper (Stephanie the cat) doesn’t distract me and get in the way. 😉
