New Book on the Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist Now Available
A new book featuring the miniature paintings of Wes and Rachelle Siegrist, with a forward by Dr. David J. Wagner, and an introduction on wildlife art and conservation by Alan Singer is now available.
By: Wes Siegrist
"The miniature paintings of Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are always exciting additions to the exhibitions of the Society of Animal Artists. These little marvels depict the natural world in an intimate and intriguing manner, and they beg to be examined in minute detail. These diminutive gems contain all the elements of the largest works in our shows: good composition, interesting content, balance, color, and exquisite detail. They also show a good understanding of anatomy and the proper depiction of natural behaviors and habitat, which is vitally important in good animal art. These works succeed brilliantly on all levels.
I have been a huge fan of the Siegrists' work since I first saw it years ago. Since then, I have added several of their paintings to my personal collection, and would love to have a wall full! Wes and Rachelle's paintings are a constant source of delight, beauty, and inspiration for anyone who enjoys quality works of art, and the world of nature."
