Wildlife Paintings by Cheryl Gilarsky

Cheryl Gilarsky is a painter who focuses on wildlife and landscape scenery in her subject matter. Her painting style is interestingly varied, and can range from very tight, realistic brush work, to a colourful, almost expressionist-like style.

Looking through Cheryl's online portfolio, I enjoy seeing this range of styles in action - her collection of wildlife paintings features the appearance of a moose in several different lightings and painting styles - from a sombre, serious portrait, to a fluid, brightly coloured Blue Moose.

Cheryl's love for her subject matter is clear in thoughout her work - no matter what stylistic choices she makes, there is a sense that she seeks to fully understand her subject matter though the act of painting it. This presence of mind is clear whether she is painting a city street, a portrait, or a wilderness scene. It shows in not only her fine art paintings, but in her commercial murals as well.
