Artist's description:

I have always been fascinated with fantasy and mythology. As a teenager one of my favorite authors stared griffins in one of her series. These were intelligent, loyal, fierce guardians of their people.
Griffons have been depicted in a variety of cultures throughout history. Depicted on ancient stone tombs, griffins are the guardians and protectors of life, and remain loyal in their protection even in the afterlife.

“My paintings are full of light, color, and whimsy. With each painting I invite the viewer to share with me the joy I find in life. It’s simple, I want my paintings to make you smile!”

I build acrylic paints up in layers using brushes (and occasionally my fingers) to create a luminous painting that glows from within.

I use 1.5 deep gallery wrapped canvases and paint the edges black, giving the painting a contemporary look that does not require framing. However it can be framed if you wish. Painting is ready to hang.

Paintings are signed on the front.
