Fauna – Creatures Great & Small

“The camera captures the likeness of a subject, but recording those same details with pencil or paint will etch them into the artist’s soul.  We meet as two creatures, and a silent communication connects us.  Working from photos or from life – hours or even days later when the studies are finished,  we are connected forever.” – Lisa Brunetti

“Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed — chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones. “ – John Muir
