What is described as second nature, Ryan Kirby’s work found him at a very young age. While many believe they are destined to choose a craft in life, painting naturally chose Ryan when he first began painting wild animals from around the family farm.
His work caught my eye via The National Wild Turkey Federation’s Facebook page and I have been enamoured ever since. Scroll below to see what I mean:
See & Be Seen was painted in the heart of the Florida spring turkey season and was used on the cover of the March 2015 Fur-Fish-Game
Painted during a moose hunt on the Hogatza River in Alaska.
If you look closely you will see the hunter in the background of this painting. This might be my favorite one, illustrating perfectly how easily some of these bruiser bucks can give even the most seasoned hunters “the slip”.
