Original Oil Painting (Canvas) by Joanne Miller-Petko
24" x 30"
Since I began to draw I have been drawn to nature and wildlife. I have tried to capture animals within their characteristic boundaries and in relationship to their peculiarities of behavior. I work in a variety of mediums, but
my favorite is oil on canvas.
Our world is shrinking rapidly in terms of global resource and habitat, and the quality of the natural environment is in serious peril. Plant and animal species are more threatened by the minute and I hope to participate in widely expressed concerns related to this certainty.
This is why
I commit a portion of all my nature paintings to the protection and preservation of wildlife
Welcome to "Paintings ----- A New Work, A New Day -----
Welcome to my Wildlife and Portraiture blog. I hope you'll come often. Please feel free to click on any of the posts here, and share you're comments. I'm currently working on a series, so I'm not able to post as often as usual, but I'll soon be able to give this situation a little more attention. I appreciate your feedback, and look forward to it.
This blog was created by Joanne Miller-Petko. I am a twin and while most of my twin's and my adult lives were spent apart - having raised our own families - we are now pooling our creative abilities. We are artists and we are currently getting our painting a day endeavors off the ground. We intend to follow other blogs in this category and hope along the way to pick up some followers of our own. They say we began to draw about the same time we began to walk and talk, so it's been a part of who we are for some time!
Our signature features are a strong bent toward detail and finish. Please email us(firstname.lastname@example.org -or- at email@example.com) and let us hear from you.
