The rewards of getting to know these animals while experiencing them up close is that Chris has been able to convey their personalities and expressions, and capture them in his paintings!  Below is a record of the FUN and JOY that these animals have brought to Chris. Enjoy each photo as Chris shares the passion he has for them!
