“Leader of the Pack” – once in a lifetime, every wildlife artist has to make a painting of wolves in the snow. Wolves speak to our imaginations. Learning about their long distances to travel and their refined technique of hunting in a pack has only increased my respect for them. Here I wanted to concentrate on a spirit of a leader, alpha, and feeling myself planning a strategy for the next hunt. Painters are privileged beings, because in our imagination we can become intimate with the animals we paint. For the time I worked on this art piece, I felt very close to this wolf. In nature, one can never approach this closely to wild animals, particularly if they are predators.
