Customer Feedback

“It looks absolutely stunning. You’ve beautifully captured the concept we wanted.” — Steven Sisolak, MindSlicer, Bloomington, IN

Artist Comments

The Beautiful Infinite is a commissioned painting that I did for the band members of MindSlicer, an alternative music group. They contacted me because they liked my artistic style and especially my space art paintings. The band wanted to know if I would be willing to create a painting for them to use as the cover for their upcoming album.

My Assignment

Compose a painting that emphasizes the infinity of space with thousands of visible stars and galaxies. It needed to be colorful and vibrant to balance the colder night sky with equal parts of warmth.

In addition, the composition needed to include the silhouette of a person standing on the bank of a river or edge of a precipice. This person holds a balloon and is partially floating up into the air as if the balloon were trying to carry him off into the starry night sky.

Size: 18″ x 24″
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A realistic wildlife portrait painting of the African leopard with a camouflaged background.

SOLD: This painting is a commission and has sold.

Artist Comments

This leopard painting was commissioned by an art collector who is passionate about Africa. He wanted a wildlife portrait of a leopard created for his private African art collection. I painted this artwork from a reference photo provided by my customer. It is one of five paintings he commissioned me to do.

About Leopards

Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars. They live in sub-Saharan Africa, northeast Africa, Central Asia, India, and China.

Leopards easily adapt to a wide variety of habitats, altitudes, and temperatures, from high mountains to deserts to rainforests. The largest leopards are named after the regions where they’re found, like the North African leopard and the Persian leopard.

These big cats have a varied diet and enjoy different kinds of grub. They eat bugs, fish, antelope, monkeys, rodents, deer…in fact, pretty much any prey that is available!

Customer Feedback

Teresa, our favorite elephant just arrived. My wife and I absolutely love it. So much more special in person. Fantastic! We can hardly wait to see the next two. Thanks again. — G. Callan, San Diego CA

Artist Comments

This African elephant painting is the first one of five commission paintings I painted for a client who lives in San Diego, California. He first contacted me about another elephant painting that I had painted several years back called Raging African Elephant. Since that one had already sold, he commissioned me to do the one above. While I was working on this painting, this same client commissioned more paintings of Africa.

Some Interesting Facts About African Elephants

    • The word “elephant” comes from the Greek word “elephas,” meaning “ivory.”
    • Elephants are the largest of all land animals and have an average life span of 50 to 70 years. There are only two distinct types of elephants — African and Asian. Of these two varieties, African elephants are the largest. The African variety has larger ears than their Asian cousin. Their ears look like the African continent and are used to radiate heat away from their body. Asian elephant ears are smaller and rounded.
    • African elephants prefer to stay in herds of 12 to 20, and most of them live on the Savannah. Both the male and female African elephants grow tusks. They can grow to more than 12 feet tall and weigh up to about 7 tons (14,000 pounds).
    • Males are called bulls, females are cows, and a baby is called a calf. When a calf is born, it can weigh 200 pounds and stand 3 feet tall. Gestation is about 22 months. The females are highly social and take excellent care of their offspring.
