    A sleek and graceful cougar known for his strength and awesome ability to jump makes his decision to attack as he leaps towards the deer.  Once airborne, he has little control over where he will land, knowing it will be a hit or miss.   The alert deer having heard the cat's take-off wastes no time in swiftly leaping to safety. There will be another time for the cougar as he successfully closes 80% of all stalks with a kill.  The deer has made this his great escape in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
