In the sharp focus of a photorealist, Doni Kendig captures the nobility and spirit of her living subjects in their natural environment. The impact of her work, with its uncanny fidelity to reality, is immediate upon the viewer. We instinctively respond to the tensed beauty of a big cat, consumed by its vigilant stare. The spread of an eagle's wings in mid-flight inspires awe, while the potential menace in a wolf pack' s gathering glare suggests caution.

A world traveler, Doni avidly records natural phenomena with a camera. Studies of layered clouds over New Zealand, wave patterns mid-ocean, the wildlife on the vast plains of Africa, and field impressions of birds are documented by her discerning eye. The photographic studies build a collective lexicon ready for consideration in future work. She has a deeply felt admiration for nature and is devoted to communicating its multitude of ever changing atmospheric conditions and attitudes. Her original oil paintings sell for $4,000. to $20,000. based on sizes. and subject.

As a child, she experienced Nebraska's seasonal changes and the beauty of its harsh winters. A move to Arizona started an ongoing love affair with the desert. The enduring mystique of its isolation and dramatic sunsets were painted with splellbinding verity to place and time. A final move to California brought about a recognition of not only the ocean's power and dynamics, but also its ephemeral quality of dancing light on water's surface.

Doni Kendig's paintings resonate with depth, a highly persuasive feeling for texture, and solidity of mass. Basically self- taught, she has an inherently deep understanding of all aspects of nature. Whether it be the delicate curve of a feather, the suggested weight of a rock, or the graceful poise of a leopard, each is infused with perfect reality. We are readily convinced of their rightful place on earth. Gazing at the changing shades of gold to deep purple on the slopes of "Desert Spectacular" she notes " . . . you feel the insignificance of man, except as a threat."

Doni Kendig has developed a technique of applying an undercoating of acrylic to her canvas. This is overpainted with oils, which builds transparency and richness in light quality. Finally, coats of varnish are added. Each step measurably adds to an incredible sensation of depth.
