Originals must go

My originals have not been available for sale for a while. My goal was to wait until I had painted a rather large collection of originals and present them to a gallery for sale. But I just don't have the space. My studio is getting crowded and it's time to let some go. First up for sale is my painting of a mother giraffe and her baby. Click the image for more info.

Wildlife Art Magazine Ceases Operations

Sad news. An excerpt from an email I received the other day:

Dear Wildlife Art magazine community,

It is with deep regret that we announce that Wildlife Art magazine ceased operations Friday, May 9. We remain hopeful that someone will purchase the magazine and continue to operate it for the benefit of wildlife art lovers around the world...

(edited to remove names, personal email addresses, and phone numbers)

...The Wildlife Art magazine staff is tremendous! Should you choose to work with any of them on future projects know you'll be working with talented professionals.

We appreciate the three-plus years of relationship we've had with each of you, and wish you well.


Keith and Tricia

The email did not say why the company is closing down but I contacted Paul Montag from the magazine to confirm that is, indeed, true. It appears to have been a surprise to most of the employees there.

This is particularly sad for me. Wildlife Art Magazine has been around for at least 30years I believe. It's been there for me as long as I've been in the wildlife art business and it's always been my main source of news and information on the wildlife art world. There's nothing out there I know of that can take its place. I truly hope someone does buy the company and keep it going. It will be sorely missed by many in the wildlife art world if it's gone for good.
