Panteras by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Panteras
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
Ebony
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.

Izwi Lami. Hear my voice. by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Izwi Lami. Hear my voice.
Acrylic on canvas (with a little Photoshop help from my son Mickey michelesigh.deviantart.com/ 45 x 90cm. This is an illustration for a collaborative book I'm currently working on. I thought it would be an appropriate addition because of the leopard. This is the first time my son & I have worked together on a piece so I'm quite stoked to include it in my gallery.

Bath Time by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Bath Time
Acrylic on canvas. 50 x 50cm. Not much to comment on this piece except to say that I enjoyed watching the interplay as the cheetah groomed her cub- it was anxious for mom to get the job done so that it could run off to play with it's siblings- no different to us humans!

Shayamanzi by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Shayamanzi
Acrylic on canvas. 60 x 120cm. A collector of mine really liked a painting that I did of a lioness running through water which I completed a while back ("Ambush"). He asked if I could do a leopard in a similar setting. I didn't have much reference of leopards in water so I had to "borrow" some detail from the lioness piece. I think it turned out pretty well in the end. "Shayamanzi" is Zulu for "Strike the water" which I thought was an apt title for this action piece.

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.
