Warm Shadows - FINALIST, June 2019Save Favorites
This cougar is one of the rescued big cats at Turpentine Creek sanctuary in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Even though my painting does not depict it, the habitat she lives in is large with grass, trees, enrichment and vet services. The animals there are never used for entertainment but instead are respected and allowed to live out the rest of their lives being as free as possible. I try to get there at least once a year and have painted many of their magnificent residents. They accept and depend on donations for the wonderful work that is done for the animals, the website is www.turpentinecreek.org.
