Norma Beatriz Zaro, wildlife realist artist, was born in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Her passion for painting animals in the tropical setting of her home country can be seen in each of her spectacularly dynamic works.  Sadly, there is not much information available about Zaro in English; but from her website it appears she is concerned about environmental issues, and also the plight of species of animals going into extinction.  These fundamental principles motivate her to paint wildlife in order to touch people’s minds and hearts with their beauty and spirit, and consequently preserve the lives of the animals she adores.

Zaro imbues each wild animal, bird, and domestic animal with personality–a snapshot of their demeanor or attitude frozen in time.  I think one of Norma Zaro’s greatest talents has to be the way she paints eyes, such penetrating depth and an acute eye for color can be seen in her portrayals of animal or bird eyes.  The detail of Zaro’s grasp of realism is expressed so preeminently in the exacting, careful way she captures fur or feathers.

Not only is Zaro a master of depicting wildlife in her oil paintings, but she’s also highly collectible to the masses due to her extremely low prices!  Her current offerings range in cost from USD $25 to $75, each painting ships for approximately USD $10 to $15, and she conveniently accepts Paypal.  I first spotted Zaro years ago on eBay; she’s now using her blog to sell paintings.  Please go to http://normazaro.blogspot.com/ to view and purchase paintings from Norma Zaro.

The painting above of the ocelot was the painting that inspired my love of Norma Zaro’s work.  The sunbeams shining down on the ocelot, depiction of the fierce determination in his eyes, and the rendering of the bark of the tree and tropical surrounds all speak to the art and animal lover in me!  I am sure you will agree with me, Zaro’s work is not only superbly executed, but it is also a perfect price point for any art lover.
