Smile Ed Spera...amazing animal art

Hey guys,
If you want to see some amazing art go to www.speraart.ca . I own a bunch of his paintings, and am constantly checking to see if anything new is out. A portion of his sales go to rescue animal org.s Also, he paints from live photos. He travels all the time observing these animals in the wild and then paints from actual scenes he's observed. They are amazing, and each one has a unique story to go with it (he's always willing to share the story of how your painting came to be.) I sound like an add for this guy.... but honestly I am not a family memeber or friend of his. I am just in awe of the work he does. If you don't believe me check it out for yourself!! It's Edward Spera
www.speraart.ca or search Untamed Art. He is located in Port Dalhousie (Niagara Region) but travels extensivly in art shows.

Do you mean Robert Bateman? If so, yeah...I love his stuff too. I'm eyeing up a print at a local art gallery. A bit pricy, but worth it I think.

Oh Bateman's fantastic! We have a signed, numbered, limited edition print over our sofa. We also just got a limited edition print from hubby's work - they commissioned him to paint a tree frog for the company's owner's 75th b-day, and all the employees got a framed 11X14 reproduction. He said it was very unusual for him to do such a colourful piece of work - he usually stays within the beige/tan hues.
