What strikes me the most about an animal is their gaze. And in the instance of the lion, it's that mesmerizing eye color and flowing mane. With yellow, orange, brown and flecks of gold, King's eyes draw you in. My brushstrokes are intentional and meant to create a dynamic feel that moves your eyes up, around and down to the vibrant colors in his mane. Subtle gold accents are picked up in the light.
Residing in the Hudson River Valley of Upstate NY. I am an artist, trail runner, dog foster and lover of all-things nature and that is what continually inspires my work. I work primarily in pencil and acrylic and often alternate between the two, finding that I love the precise realism obtained with a pencil while simultaneously craving the swaths of color I use when I'm painting. The paintings you see here stem from my love of the sky. There is nothing like the color palette that exists during any given sunrise or sunset. I am most active on Instagram (ID: storytreeart) where you can see pieces in progress .
