This painting is a little change of pace from my horses and cow portrait paintings. This is a big boy from the north looking rather dapper. It is always a joy to see wildlife cross my path while out in the pasture with the horses. We have mostly deer, fox, bob cats and coyotes. My neighbor, Peggy, said she had a bear cross her yard and then other neighbors have had mountain lions come to visit in the night. I do not want to see either the bear or the mountain lion, especially up close. Enjoying the wildlife made for, "A Painting Day".
