The animal world on land, in water, and in the air, painted with feeling and imagination, is the focus for this group.Rather than getting every detail down realistically,this is a place for paintings incorporating abstract and more expressive approaches to depictions of animals as well as the human - animal connection. Humorous, emotive, visionary, and mystical work are very welcome.
This group is designed as a showcase for high level expressive paintings. Photography and digital painting are excluded.. A degree of digital enhancement will be accepted as long as it has been used to illuminate, not alter, the original painting. If it is more computer generated than handmade it will not be included. The choice of featured work is based upon the quality of imagination and feeling expressed, strength of the composition and inspired work with line,
.I encourage submissions of inspired outside of the box paintings, ones that express a vision, spiritual sense, and feeling that comes through best with color and a freer approach.My emphasis in evolving a group is that the images section as well as the features on the homepage have the feeling of a fine gallery of interesting intriquing work.
Each animal species, as in the plant world, carries a quality or virtue no longer known or felt by most people.This gallery is a showcase for those wonderful, at times wild, moving and personally felt connections of the human and animal being existences.
