Wildlife Paintings

"Moonlight Movement, Elephants" Another big painting, this one is 30 x 40 inches, showing an idea that has been in Elin's head for a while--not easily captured from life. On the move, the elephant mom and baby are headed for the water. Elephants travel day and night to get to their watering holes. Original oil on gallery wrap canvas. $4000 Email Elin.
"Before the Hunt, Cheetahs" This painting is HUGE, measuring four by five feet! Elin loves to do these large pieces of wildlife, especially since each one is a portrait of some of the wildlife at the Living Desert Museum in Palm Desert, California! Giraffes, Zebras, and now Cheetahs, here is the third painting in the Living Desert Series. Original oil on gallery wrap canvas, 48 x 60 inches. $6000 Email Elin.
Back with the acrylics, and this is a 5 x 5 study from some photographs I'd taken several years ago at the Wildlife Way Station. I've been working on the new acrylic video, and so I've put up the oils for a few days.

"Cougar" is availabe for $100 by clicking the link below:
"Little Visitor" I have been camping in places where these raccoons are so bold, they come out during daylight to raid your campsite. This fellow was so bold, I had to keep backing up to even get him in the picture!. Oil on board-backed canvas, 9 x 12 inches, available for US $275 from the artist.
"Itchy Scratchy" Miniature Even smaller than regular work, this painting is about the size of a large postage stamp, at 1.5 x 2 inches. Yet all the detail of a 16 x 20 is contained in it. US $250 in a gorgeous frame, from the artist.
"African Moments, Giraffes" This painting measures four feet by five feet tall, and the image here doesn't convey the sunlight intensity of this colorful painting! I spent several days in composing this family of giraffes, placing them dramatically with the gorgeous colors of the sunset behind them. Original oil, 60 x 48 inches. $7000. Email Elin.
"Watchful (Buffalo)" A very nice study of two buffalo, in subtle and greyed blue and orange earth tones. On gallery-wrap canvas, this 12 x 12 original oil needs no framing, as the painting continues around the sides. US $ 300 from the artist.
"Fast Cat #1" Elin was on a marathon roll with this painting, a 30 x 40 canvas, completed at the La Quinta Desert Plein Air! That's the challenge of plein air painting, and Elin had a double challenge to get the likeness of these "fast cats" every time they would show themselves. There were two in the enclosure, and at first this one was laying on the sunny slope, but then both started pacing around the pen. Original acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas (no frame needed). $1200 Email Elin.

"Highway 74 Bighorn" On the day before the official start of the La Quinta Desert Plein Air event, Elin and her good friend Gwen went up Highway 74 in the late afternoon and did a little on location work. Here's Elin's result, an 8 x 10 oil on canvas. That sheep took a bit of imagineering though. US $350 Contact the artist.
"Moo-sying Along" Many years ago Elin had this Guersey and Brahma cross heifer.  Since it had four legs, Elin turned it into a riding animal.  Only problem was, "steering" was non-existent!  Original oil on canvas, 8 x 10 inches unframed. Buy with your credit card US $ 400 Purchase from the artist
