Lone Trumpeter by Debbie Hughbanks
Acrylic 14" x 11"
 
This painting is the companion piece for the recently completed Trumpeters' Glow. Either piece would work well hang well as an individual painting, but together they would hang beautifully as a diptych.

A Big New World by Debbie Hughbanks
Pastel 20 x 14
 
I fell in love with these newborn baby lambs and their mom when I saw them on our daughter's farm. I knew I had to capture the moment when they first discovered the big new world beyond the barn door.

One So Small by Debbie Hughbanks
Acrylic 16" x 20"
 
This tree is on our property behind our home. On one of our walks late last summer both my husband and I were struck by the light hitting the bark of the trunk giving it an ethereal glow. I immediately envisioned a tiny fox tucked snuggly beneath the protective bend so close to the ground and this painting was born.

Macaw by Debbie Hughbanks
Scratchboard 6" x 6"
 
Recently I went back to scratchboard and created four new pieces with an animal as my subject. These four works are straight forward black and white scratchboard compositions no color or background added. I love the strength and directness achieved when scratchboard is approached this way.
