Pure Elegance

Although I had seen these gorgeous creatures in photographs and on television, I had never actually met one until we visited a dog show about a month ago. I spent some time studying them and talking with their people. They are regal and graceful and I was completely in awe. I was reminded of the quotation by Keats, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
This is a pastel, 8 x 10, mounted and matted with a double white mat. Matted size is 12 x 14. It is offered on Art Helping Animals.
Painting has been sold, thanks for looking...

Red Fox, Baby Mountain Lion

Red Fox
9 x 12

Cougar Cub

Pastel, 6 x 8

Trying to play "catchup." It has been a while since I have blogged, but sometimes life gets so busy and so complicated, it is hard to write about it. Lately it seems I have been painting a lot of predators: tigers and wolves, foxes and cougars. They are all beautiful animals, and all have a part to play in God's wonderful creation. Both of these are available through Art Helping Animals
