Some artists strive for realism when portraying animals, others go for fun and the imaginary.
Sarah Webber is an artist who can achieve a visual sense of realism when painting her subjects, but her titles take the renderings beyond just the visual, to establish a short story caught in time. In her painting called “Leap of Faith, Sarah gives the viewer the sense of a optimism as the bunny hops into the unknown. “Two Times the Fun”, shows two burros, caught giving their attention to a subject off canvas, and captures their sense of anticipation of what is to come.
Trevor Mikula deals strictly in the imagined. His painting style is honed to an economy of brushwork and details. The colors are yummy, and the subjects huggable. Animal Kingdom features all styles and interpretations of our wonderful world of animals. Artists include Ron Russon, Jaime Ellsworth, Connie Townsend, Chaille Trevor, and many more.

Jim Nelson chooses to present the Lakota Sioux tribe through careful and thoughtful study and depiction of their attributes. Still others, like Jack Roberts, use the spiritual influence to produce stunning abstract paintings.“Influence of the Native Spirit” also includes artists who depict bison, wild horses, and petroglyphs that were important to American Native peoples.

Artists create sometimes controversial images. People viewing them interpret them in unique ways. A painting that is seen as absolutely noncontroversial by one person, might be viewed by someone else as unusual, edgy, or even bizarre. Timothy Chapman’s flying Zebras or floating elephants might seem “weird” to some people, but to others they are perfectly charming and imaginative. Ryan Hale’s stark contrasted abstracts evoke that old cliché “my kid could do that”, from some people, but to others they evoke a sense of polish, sophistication and balance.Greg Dye’s exuberantly painted landscapes actually make some people stop and proceed with caution, but others respond to them with joy – just what the artist hoped for.
