This panda is obviously enjoying his dinner of bamboo. Pandas are so adorable; what great envoys to show people how important it is to protect and preserve wildlife. This is superb. The fur shows individual hairs. The eyes are soulful. The exquisite purple mountains in the background and the details of each bamboo shoot add to the incredible feeling one gets from enjoying the artwork of this very talented artist.
I did not personally know the artist, only that he was an amazing wildlife artist living in Ohio, specializing in oils and pastels, and did pet portraits as well. Wish I had known him. Years ago I bought a number of his panda paintings. They are fantastic. Will be listing them separately, but will discount if someone buys several. And of course shipping costs go down as well.
