Sylvester looked at me with one expression in his eyes," Why?" And I knew he was saying, how could you do this to me? You have betrayed me. And I couldn't answer him and explain why I had got a dog. Now our backyard has lost its appeal for Sylvester, that special sunspot under the tree. Instead a hyper Westie, named, Snowball, runs around full of glee, digging holes and barking his head off, while Sylvester looks accusingly on from the neighbor's yard. A dull yard that holds none of the wild delights of ours. Sylvester I'm sorry! And maybe it means nothing to you, but you're still my muse! (See my page, Sylvester, the Tuxedo Cat and while you're at it check out the new page, Snowball, the Westie. But don't tell Sylvester!)
This painting was inspired by a truly transformative experience. It was as if I had magically been set down in the private paradise of the egrets of Cape May, New Jersey. This was at the Cape May Nature Conservatory. By some miracle, no one else was on the trail. I was alone with these magnificent creatures. I could observe them as much as I wanted. And I noticed they were looking me over too, perhaps mistaking my binoculars for real eyes. One Great White Egret in particular was posing for his movie star closeup, and he was movie star handsome! I've included the link to my YouTube video (Pam Malone), so you too can enjoy this magical experience.

My art is based on my imagination, what I see in front of me, or sometimes on a photo I have taken. I don't usually use someone else's photograph, but I made an exception this time. My son, Joe T. Malone, an exceptional nature photographer, published a book of his wildlife photos. In looking through it, I saw a wonderful photo of a deer, who was reclining in the grass, totally enjoying the view, like anyone of us would have done, if we'd found ourselves in Colorado on a beautiful summer day. I was struck by the intimacy of the photo, the deer's pose, attitude and gaze. I used Acrylic to bring out the strong colors I wanted to express.
