"Being an artist isn’t just a “right brain” activity---you must use ALL of your brain, body and spirit to create. When the creation is done, the whole is much more than the sum of its parts… and so is the creator." - Lyrae Perry

Nature & Wildlife Art by Lyrae

I’m a working artist, not just a traveler, and sometimes I’m so involved in doing my art, that I forget that I need to let people know how to find  my art website so they can see the work I love to do!   My art website is called : Nature & Wildlife Art by Lyrae.   You might have found my art website by accident, but that’s getting tougher and tougher with the changing algorithms of Google and the other search engines.  So today, I’m going to make it really easy for you to find my art website.

Click on the link below and take a tour of all the art gallery pages.  I’ve added a few new artworks  in “Birds” and two new pieces in Maleficent’s Garden that I think you’ll enjoy. .

There’s a link on the Misc Subject  page that will take you to my Zazzle store site and you can get some of my art printed on cups, t-shirts, and a variety of other items you might like.  Check out the sample coffee mug “Chondrules – Jewels from the Big Bang”.   All items from the Zazzle store site  are made to order –  you get just what you want, delivered right to your door!  If you want an image of mine that’s not on the Zazzle store site, email me and I’ll load it for you.  It’s such a cool thing to get just what you want…and Christmas is coming!

Here’s the link to the home page of  Nature & Wildlife Art by Lyrae:


I want to share something special with you today.  It’s a sneak peak of a work in progress.


Dream of Africa lo rez







The title of this artwork  is “Dream of Africa “, and is a rendering of an aerial view of the Okavango River when it floods during the rainy season.  I did not make up the colors!  This was exactly what I found in the photos….I just love view and the color in this piece.  It sorta reminds me of Neverland.   The painting is oil on canvas, 12″ x 24”, with thick impasto for the plants that stick up out of the water.  I rarely share a work that’s not complete, but I think this is something really fun to look at “in process”.   I’ll post the finished version of “Dream of Africa” on my art website,  Nature & Wildlife Art by Lyrae as soon as it’s done.

How do you feel about sharing your unfinished works? Let me know what you think about that in the comment section below.

Have a great week!
