THE WILD ART BY DOUG HISER "PAINTED JUNGLES" ART SHOW IS ON JAN 7TH - FEB 2nd at the Brazos Center of the Arts and Sciences, located at Brazosport College in Clute, Texas.
I recently enjoyed a few moments on "AIR" on LocalLiveHouston.com radio show "Stiletto Radio" Cat "CATZILLA" Dietrich last Thursday evening and it was a fun and enjoyable interview!
The art show opening reception was Jan 10th and we were lucky to have large crowds and many art buyers there. I enjoyed meeting so many new animal lovers and art enthusiasts! Thanks to all that showed up and had a grand time buying my art and listening to me ramble about my wildlife adventures around the world. I liked telling the animal encounter stories behind the paintings. My wife and I love tracking and observing animals in the wild and I can think of no better way to relive these adventures than through my heart by producing vivid compositions of the beautiful and mysterious wildlife in a wild and natural habitat of one of my watercolor paintings or a detailed ink or pencil illustrations.
This summer of 2014 we will journey NORTH----to Tongass National Forest and Denali National Park in Alaska. We look forward to exciting observations of grizzly bears, salmon, black bears, elk, caribou, musk ox, wolverines, wolves, foxes, dall sheep, bald eagles, orcas, humpback whales, porpoises, sea lions, otters, and more.
Enjoy the steps of my latest Brazilian Pantanal painting, "Palm Tree Hyacinth Macaws," the largest and most endangered macaw on planet Earth. We have many stories of them flying over us and all around, chattering above us in the tree tops, but most of all they always seem to be smiling at you! I wanted to capture that in my painting.
Thanks for tuning in on my artistic wildlife journey! Doug Hiser
