Room WIth a View

I don't think many folks realize how close we came to losing the American Bison. They once blackened the plains and were the main source of everything for the native people of this country. By 1886 the herds of over 60 million had been reduced to about 1100. That's so close to extinction, it's amazing they have made the recovery they have.
This painting makes me wonder what it must have been like for the last buffalo in a particular area. Bison are herd animals and like horses and cows, need companionship of their own kind to thrive. How lonely he must have been.

This painting is available for purchase.

Psalm 25:16Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
