So I showed my new painting “Show Offs” to my friend Chris, and he told me that it is the best animal featured painting I have ever done. It is always good to get an outside opinion, whether it is someone you know or a complete stranger.
I’m thoroughly enjoying painting these large grandiose animal scenes! They are just so much fun, though they are big undertakings with a palette knife.
“Show Offs” is very similar to “Dolphin Bliss,” a painting that inspired it. The only difference is in the new painting there are orcas breaching out of the water. The colors and theme are pretty close.

Here you can see the similarities in theme, color, and composition. But “Show Offs” really is much more dramatic, in my opinion. These are my largest oil paintings of my career so far and am looking forward to going much bigger. I would like to eventually get up to 48×60 inches, which is a HUGE canvas, especially for a dinky palette knife! 🙂

Also, be sure to browse my available painting in my exclusive Etsy shop! Sales are really starting to grow which is really nice. It seems like yesterday when I only had two!
Until next time,
let’s bring some color into the world!
