Roosterart.com provides a sampling of Dave Merrill's artwork. Merrill uses bold brushstrokes and vivid color to capture the personality of each of his wild subjects:

There's a part of the animals, where I'm modeling and manipulating. Then in the background, I'm cutting loose and letting the paint happen. — From The Difference is In the Doodle by Sara Ford

Merrill's artwork is found in galleries in Aspen, Jackson, Scottsdale, Sun Valley, Park City, Kansas City, San Antonio, and Santa Fe.
