Well, maybe you haven't found a museum or gallery you like well enough yet?
Not too long ago I went to http://www.nationalcowboymuseum.org/
While their galleries are mostly western themed there were a lot of animal paintings and sculptures, too. Cougars were popular subjects - such as Gerald Balciar's Canyon Princess
. The details on some of them were amazing. What was funny, though, were some people behind DH and I talking about how amazing a drawing of a horse in graphite was - while the drawings by the artist were good, I can and have sold drawings with the same amount of detail.
Back in high school I frequently lost work because people would steal it from my art class locker.
Look up "fantasy art" in google, there are a lot of galleries. http://www.elfwood.com/
has a mix of amazing artists and those who should probably take some art lessons.
There's some stories and poems on there, too.
that's similar, though they seem to be a bit pickier. (this artist's gallery http://www.epilogue.net/cgi/database...y=11954&genre=
has some of the cutest paintings and little stories along with them - I love the fruit bats)
