On this nascent site in support of the brick-and-mortar gallery, it seems that I’ve not posted much of the bread and butter of the place. That particular sandwich being wildlife photography. And, hopefully, as you see the stuff, you’ll see that the aim is at wildlife portraiture. That is to say I’d like to think I’m getting something out of the individual critter rather than “I took a picture of a horse”. Maybe you’ll see it in this one. Doesn’t it look like a portrait of her – that individual burro?
This is a female wild burro up near the entrance of an abandoned mine near Oatman, Arizona. When the gold mine closed down, the miners apparently abandoned a bunch of burros and now there are a couple of herds in the area. Neat creatures. And this one is such a pretty one. I swear she not only picked the right spot to stand (all those colors framing her), but she actually posed – even vamped – for me. Pretty girl!
I’ve got this one in the gallery on a 30×40 acrylic for $875 and it’s outstanding. The best value, though, are the smaller acrylics in handmade barnwood frames. The 8×10 (13.5 x 15.5 with the frame) goes for only $85 and the 11×14 (16.5 x 19.5) is $125. Price points for everyone. Add about five percent for shipping within the U.S.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase or discuss other media (metal, foamcore, traditional prints, etc.) and other sizes. This is really a neat shot. Pretty girl.
