Skillfully rendered rabbit fur, in Debbie Hughbanks drawing In the Garden is so believable you may find yourself reaching out to touch your computer screen. It’s a work of realism to rival the famed Young Hare (1502) watercolor painting of Albrecht Durer. Artist Debbie Hughbanks specializes in painting the wildlife around her studio in Washington State in the USA. She may have also traveled to the tropics to see the sea turtles, shells glistening wet, in her painting Taking the Plunge.

In Daniel Smith’s painting Cowbird Companions, a portrait an American bison stares defiantly at us, unperturbed by the Cowbirds resting on his massive shoulders. All are in a symbiotic relationship, with the birds eating insects around the enormous animals. Daniel Smith’s paintings and Giclee prints are represented by Pacific Flyway Gallery.

Roman Rocco Burgan knows his fish! While most of us might simply see an expressive and lovely rendering of a gold fish pond is his painting below, the artist identifies the breed or strain of goldfish as Bristol Blue Shubunkin and Golden Rudd.

You’ll find beautiful animal art in Marcella Rose’s Flootie portfolio here. The artist grew up on a farm and learned to appreciate animals early in life, painting both the domesticated animals such as cows–that may remind you of Andy Warhol’s cows–but also the lesser seen animals of North American such as wild sheep and deer.

Darrell Sullen’s Ladies First is a little bit of a humourous take on this view of two cows and one bull on the river’s edge to drink.
