I enjoy doing critter paintings of all the wonderful animals. My paintings include birds and butterflies and dragonflies.
A special joy for me is painting dolphins, koi, giraffes, sea turtles and other wildlife. Sometimes I paint with oils and other times i do watercolor paintings.
Koi Feeding, oil painting by Carol May
When I grew up my parents had a retail/wholesale tropical fish
business. We had numerous outdoor ponds.
The fish would swarm around
like this when we fed them. That gave me the idea for “Koi Feeding”.
Koi fish come in a large variety of colors, so this made a colorful painting.
My husband said they just ate Jiminy the Cricket. And the one with the white head is the ring leader.
When you Start a Painting it is a good idea to paint things familiar to you.
