I’ve begun working on a new painting this week. I came across the sketch for this painting in one of my “working files” when I was “re-organizing” my studio recently. During this past year I had forgotten about it while I worked on other projects and I often have several sketches for paintings done at any given time and put them away until I’m ready to start on something new. Upon seeing it, I was inspired all over again to finish this painting. I remembered my delight in seeing this bobcat since it was quietly resting in a nicely camouflaged spot behind a large rotten log, blending in so well with the surroundings, I almost missed seeing it entirely.
