Dyl is busy painting animals that live in the zoo. For this series, he says he was inspired by Kandinsky’s “Color Study of Squares.” Dyl says this gives him a chance to use many colors all at once. His hope is that someone from our Biopark will love these pieces as much as he does and display them at the zoo.
Dyl entered two paintings into the 2014 New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair youth exhibit. This show attracts artists from all over the state including many youth artists. Dyl’s “Sunrise on the Rio Grande” won first place for 9th graders. “Spotted Sheep” was selected for a merit award by one of the exhibiting adult artists as well as an Honorable Mention by the Fair committee.
