About the Book
My sixth book has a new feature: photographs of animals are included in addition to the limericks and pictures of my paintings. The photographers are family. I took the pictures of the Colorado bears. My grand niece, Kathryn Davis, took the photos of the African wildlife.
A former lawyer now pursuing a career in fine art, I am an expressionist painter trying to capture the spirit of my subject, be it man, animal or place. Since 2008 I have written, illustrated and published ten books of my animal paintings and limericks. Additionally, I have published two books of my landscape paintings, each painting relating to the writings of noted environmentalists, naturalists and poets. The theme of my books is the significance of our natural assets, whether they be forests, lakes, mountains, desert, swamps or the wild animals that inhabit the wilderness.
