    Spent some teaching time with a Ohio taxidermists that wanted to improve his skill level and produce a action mount for his studio, He had never done any african work before and purchased a lion and Zebra from me along with his training.
    Small area to work in but this is what we came up with.

    Now drying and will finish base and airbrush detials soon.

    I can feel the anguish in the zebra and I can feel the hunger in the cat, oustanding art.

    That is great! As others have said, it feels alive. It's like you are watching Nat geo or discovery! Amazing job so far.

    Details are in those pins.

    Dennis you must be creative to be hidden in that bell tower work room.

    Thank for sharing your artistry. That is an apt description for sure.
