Giraffes in Interior - Untitled

Great fun to conceptualize and to paint! Oil on linen 20x16.


  1. Cette peinture est extraordinaire, j'aime sa composition et aussi parce que j'ai un certain attachement pour les girafes... Vous avez su capturer à la perfection leur attitude. La composition de cette toile est excellente... Le petit personnage sur la gauche affirme l'apparence gigantesque de ces animaux.
    Une très belle palette de couleurs...
    Gros bisous

  2. Hi, MartineAlison - I always enjoy reading your thoughts so much. I have a friend who traveled to Africa last year and brought back a few photos - I have used her giraffes as reerence for this painting. Thank you for always encouraging me.

  3. Susan, your giraffes are delightful - so gawky/beautiful, and I love the orange colors!

  4. Hi, Kathryn - gawky! I love that! lol!
    Wow, Rick, I appreciate that very much! The feeling is reciprocal!

  5. The giraffes seem to be enjoying the gallery Susan :) I think it’s something that should be encouraged! Education for all :)

    Hi Dave - I quite agree. I just hope they have the funds to begin their own personal collections :-)!
