About The Artist
Born (1961) and raised in Michigan artist Pablo Dominguez began drawing around age 4. As a muchacho (Spanish for “youth”), many hours were spent exploring and working outdoors while visiting relatives in a rural area of Mexico with no electricity or running water, but plenty of ranch animals. The Christian artist summarizes his respect for the natural world by stating “I am continually amazed at the beauty, design, and purpose that almighty God has placed into his creation of nature and wildlife. And I don’t say that in a whimsical or trite manner, but rather from an undersanding that the design, complexity, and order we see in all life points to a common designer rather than a common ancestor”. Pablo’s travels across the United States include visits to areas such as Yellowstone National park, South Dakota’s Badlands, Audubon State Park, and the Great Smoky Mountains. His trips to wildlife refuge areas and large and small zoos also allow him many hours of observation and study of wildlife and landscape.
Pablo’s artwork has appeared in Wildlife Art magazine and he is co-author of an instructional art book on painting wildlife in acrylics for Walter Foster Publications. The year 2005 saw his work accepted into the exhibit “Art of the Animal Kingdom X” in Bennington, Vermont, and the following year his painting titled “Brown Bear Brow” won the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club award, one of the top prizes given at the Kentucky National Willdife Art Exhibit. The artist and his wife Charlene share their home with their black lab and several cats, occasionally doing foster care work for a local animal rescue.
