Wild Thing

20 X 24 Oil SOLD
I am not really a wildlife artist, but this stunning tiger demanded to be put on canvas. He was lounging in the sun at the Ft. Worth Zoo last year, when my daughter snapped his photo.
Sometimes I pity the animals locked up in zoos, but only rarely. Large cats spend 95% of their time lounging in the wild and the rest is spent hunting and eating (and reproducing). Of course they don't hunt in the zoo, but the rest is pretty much the same! And seeing their beauty inspires folks to become conservation minded and help protect the places where they are still found wild.
Genesis 8:1 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
