Resplendence by Misted-Dream
Resplendence
Wow, there must be something in the water--two submissions in two days!? Ha! Anywho, I was on a roll this weekend and had to make another one of these. Love how this one came out. I was particularly inspired by the Joe-Pye Weed I often see whitetails in in the fall, so I had to include those plants in this piece.

So happy, thrilled, and honored to have received a DD! Of all the pieces in my gallery, it is definitely the one I would have liked to get a DD, so I'm just stoked about that.

I also just wanted to say hi to all my new watchers. Thank you so much for your support (both old and new) and I hope you find a lot of fun stuff in my gallery to browse through. :) If any of you are interested in work-in-progress photos of this particular painting (or any others, for that matter), head on over to my Facebook art page (link at the bottom of this journal entry) and you can find them all there.

Once again, thank you for this!!

Yeah, it's been a while since I've written an update about stuff in here--apologies!
Anywho, I've been fairly busy with working on finishing pieces, attending art fairs, etc. I also recently came back from a photo workshop with Jan Martin McGuire, and we were able to get many amazing photos from it! I now have great refs of wolves, cougars, black bear, badger, gray and red foxes, bobcats, etc. In fact, I'm going to start a painting based on three young wolves that we photographed there (including a beautiful young, black male). I've posted the photo comp on my Facebook page if you're interested in seeing it. :) Not sure what size it will be, but it will be tons of fun!

Hope you all are doing well!

I wanted to share this painting that I just finished yesterday. I've been working hard on this one since the end of last year/beginning of this year and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I used a TON of references in this piece and I want to thank Stefan Jacobs (orcahome.de/) for use of some of his orca photos, Matt Dozier from NOAA for more orca refs, my sis for the background refs, and the wonderful RIL on WetCanvas for the water/background. Enjoy!!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
