Here is the finish of my wolf painting. I've been so inspired doing this piece! The idea for this has been building in me for some time, ever since I first sighted a wolf near the Montana, Idaho border a few years ago. Then last week I woke up seeing this painting in my minds eye and had to just go for it! It came out exactly how I had first envisioned, so I'm very happy with the results. I still need to work on the background some, but I wanted to post this today, since I'll be taking a long weekend.

I was going to write a long litany about my thoughts on the Wolf Recovery Act here in our state, but I promised myself when I started this blog, not to use it as political platform.
But if you'd like to read more on the controversy that inspired this painting, you can go to these links:

I am endlessly amazed and inspired by the passionate responses of my fellow humans!

Happy Earth Day, Everyone!


  1. Deb,
    I think your Gray Wolf painting is great. I dont know about anyone else, but it sure looks like he's got a smile in his eyes and a grin--like he knows what he's doing, but those that see him don't know squat!! My impression only! But I think you did one heck of job on painting him!!
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks Kate,
    I think that one might have given me a few blisters.

  3. Oh Joy! Deb, I just LOVE finding a great new blog with fabulous paintings, so I am THRILLED to find your's. This wolf painting is wonderful!!

  4. Happy belate Earth Day,
    Deb. Your wolf is really great, him/her and your forest!
