Arctic Wolf (12 by 16" oil on canvas paper) In  Private Collection
While living in the Canadian arctic for a period during the summer of 2013 collecting data in a breeding Snow Goose colony for an ongoing research project I was able to see some amazing wildlife, including this Arctic wolf. I was able to get within a few yards of this shy but curious creature, it was recently swimming in a nearby lake and the texture of its drying wet fur sparked my interest to create this painting of it. This wolf seemed to have a bit of a mystical essence about it which I wanted to capture in this painting.
