This piece is from several years ago that was inspired by a cougar siting I had in the hills near my home. The siting was only one cat, but sometimes I tend to exaggerate a little.
Medium: Wood carving in solid pine, then covered in artist’s oils. Approx. 20″ inches X 10″ X 8″ thick.

This Bison project seems to have become a never ending story. Of course, I do keep putting it aside to work on other things. I really need to finish this as it is taking up a lot of room. When finished, it will hang from a hand hewn beam on the wall, but for now it occupies a six foot long swath of valuable studio/shop space.
I decided that in addition to carving this scene in relief, I would revisit an old passion of mine, oil painting, and paint over the carving. You can see part of that process here. Before I am finished, I think I will white out the painting a bit to give the appearance seeing the bison through a mist or fog.
