Wildlife paintings
EDWARD ALDRICH (b. 1965), "On the Scent," 2018, oil on panel, 24 x 24 in., Sorrel Sky Gallery (Santa Fe and Durango, CO)


As fellow residents of Earth, animals have always fascinated humans, especially the artists among us. Thus many creatures appear in prehistoric cave paintings, and today the desire to depict them endures, actually stronger than ever. The artworks illustrated here confirm this ongoing enthusiasm. Enjoy this truly national array of offerings — all encouraging evidence that this longstanding genre is alive and well.
