"Awaiting" - Animal Portrait, Fort Worth Stockyards, Texas

This handsome guy patiently greeted visitors to the Fort Worth Stockyards. He was very curious and attentive to everyone that approached him.

This is a larger piece for me, as I wanted to depict him closer to life size in order to capture the impact of his expression.

"Awaiting" • Oil on Linen • 24"x30" • Available at www.patricksaunders.com

Portrait Painting Demonstration - Newnan, Georgia

I had a great group of advanced placement art students for my portrait demonstration painting from life this morning at The Donald W. Nixon Centre for Performing & Visual Arts, as part of my Newnan Artist in Residence Program program this month. They asked great questions, and it was inspiring to see in them the effort that the community of Newnan, Georgia is making not only to support the arts, but also to develop future artists.
