I am passionate about conserving endangered wildlife, as well as biodiverse ecosystems as a whole, and have designed camouflage for use by anti-poaching rangers who protect rhinos, elephants, tigers, and so on. You may find it interesting to visit my site https://camouflagepatterns.wordpress.com/ , where you can find out out more about the lack of suitable camouflage for anti-poaching rangers, and the camouflage patterns I have specifically designed for them.

 

“Freely ye have received,  freely give.”

Matthew 18:8b.

Koala painting. Pastel and acrylic on watercolour paper. This is my Australian version of the three wise monkeys – the three wise koalas. I also put them in what I think is a logical order: if you see no evil, and hear no evil in the first place, you are less likely to talk about it.

Three wise koalas – “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” “Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.” 3 John 1:11, also Isaiah 33:15, 16. Tracts4free.wordpress.com.

Koala painting. Pastel and acrylic on watercolour paper. “Three wise koalas – See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” An autocorrected version – I don’t know much about computer manipulation of photos. You might prefer this version, but the first version is closer to the original painting. There is also another koala picture on the home page, with a different bible verse.

Waterfall paintings

“Misty falls”.”And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3. Tracts4free.wordpress.com.

Waterfall apinting. Pastel on hand-made Tibetan Lokta paper. I made up this image in my mind, but it is inspired by a black and white photo of a tree with Murchison falls in the background (Uganda, also called Kabalega falls), and Maletsunyane falls in Lesotho. This is an autocorrected version of the photo; the pictures below are closer to the original painting.

“Misty Falls”. “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”. Ps. 1:3. Tracts4free.wordpress.com.

 Waterfall painting. Pastel on hand-made Tibetan Lokta paper

“Misty falls”. “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is, For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7, 8.

Pastel waterfall painting on hand-made Tibetan Lokta paper. The three streams flowing into one are meant to symbolize the Trinity.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37b,38.Tracts4free.wordpress.com.

Waterfall painting. I am learning to manipulate photos, perhaps you will like this version.

Tiger painting. Pastel on watercolour paper. This is a tiger amongst bamboo – I did an earlier tiger painting of the same scene, showing the tiger at night with its eyes glowing, which I think is more dramatic, but most people who have not been spotlighting at night for wildlife did not understand what they were looking at. This is a daytime version.

Eastern reef egret (Pacific heron) looking for fish, Fitzroy Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia, “And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matt 4:19. Tracts4free.wordpress.com

Oil and acrylic on watercolour paper. This painting is based on a photo I took while kayaking around Fitzroy island. I liked the scene, but I was particularly interested in the challenge of painting the rippling, sparkling clear water, and the light reflected off the water and onto the granite boulders.
