"I enjoy painting "portraits" of animals.
It's amazing how truly unique each creature is... how each has
its own personality, just as we do. I am also a bit of an
anthropomorphist. I love to create scenes in which my
animals are experiencing human emotions. In, "Abundance",
the animals I've included are "sharing" the great wealth of the
Banana Yucca. "Sharing" would probably not be considered a
common behavior between predator and prey."
