“Wild Thing” – The Paintings of Amberlee Rosolowich
I went through a jag when I watched the BBC series, Planet Earth on a nightly basis. I was riveted. Pumas, aardvarks, snub nosed monkeys, gazillions of insects, you name it- all captured on film. Before this, I couldn’t have picked a rosy lipped batfish out in a lineup. Now, I know lots of neat factoids like, Chilean guanacos hydrate themselves by licking the dew from cactus spines. If you get me going, I’ll talk your ear off on the subject.
The true heroes in the film are the camera crews who must have had the patience of Job. A five second shot of an elusive snow leopard might take weeks to capture. I mean no disrespect to Marlin Perkins, who pioneered the genre after all, but it does make Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom seem kind of amateur.
Artist, Amberlee Rosolowich imagines a peaceable kingdom.

Love the artworks! thanks!
That’s a creative answer to a difficult qusiteon
Great thoughts. I’m going to check him out. Thanks Linda!
Thanks for including me in your blog, Betsy. Amber’s work is very surreal and interesting. Rather a dark side too.
Right now I am studying the work of Joe Jones. No longer living, he was from St. Louis and painted his best in his early career when he was motivated, not only by the drive to paint, but also to paint for social significance during the Dust Bowl times. After the War, his paintings became less interesting, for me anyway.
Painting without passion does not seem to work.
Wow, Betsy! These paintings are fabulous. So magical! Thank you for sharing….
I love these too!! Such a sucker for kids and animals…
Thanks. These are great tips! I’ll do it!
