Newest Deviations



Dusty by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 45 x 45cm. This is a portrait of my friend Lisa's Australian Shepherd. And yes, dogs do smile!
Challenge by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 50 x 50cm. Timber wolf in an aggressive pose.
Twiga by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 40 x 25cm. "Twiga" is the Swahili word for Giraffe. I thought it would be a great title for this cute baby.
Panteras by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 136 x 230cm. This is a commissioned piece and the largest canvas I've painted to date. I had to include pale gold hues in the painting to marry with the theme of the room in which the piece will hang. It took more than a month to complete and I'm quite happy with the outcome- more importantly, my client loves it. 
Ebony by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 60 x 60cm. I've been experimenting with a new canvas primer and this is the first piece completed on the new surface. Still getting the hang of it- it takes a lot more detail than the "toothier"primers that I've used for so many years so I opted to take things easy with this simple composition.
Thank you for the DD for "Ghost of the North"!
I spent some time in a large enclosure with two captive male snowy owls- photographing and observing them. At first they were somewhat agitated by my presence and flew over my hunched form in a threatening way. After a while, when they realized I wasn't presenting any danger to them, the quietly took position in the furthest corner away from me, watching me with those magnificent yellow eyes. I sat there with a huge grin on my face, exhilarated by the experience. My most profound memory is of how quiet the owls were in flight- their wings hardly making any sound at all! With "Ghost of the North", I tried to capture that moment of silent flight with the wraith-like owl suspended in space.

Top notch work! I love your big cat paintings. i actually mistook some of them for photos, particularly the leopard at twilight and the snow leopard. they look so real.
