what a feeling of height you've achieved here, lo. so simple and so effective.and what a smile that coyote has. your animals tend to be a happy lot. they make me smile right back at them.xoxoxo
This reminds me of the three coyotes that we saw together. It made me think it was their breeding season since they are usually loners. I love your sketch.
This is lovely.
I Love the perspective in this painting. So well done.
Very cool and environmentally conscientious :) I love it!
I really like the layout with coyote up high and all the traffic below. I'm glad he has conservation land behind him because that's a lot of lanes of traffic!
Bulletin!the land behind the coyote has been bought up by a developer and will house a target, lowes, subway, home depot, taco bell and trader joes. just kidding....:)
Oh very sweet. I like all the wilderness behind. We see lots of coyotes around here.
Wonderful perspective and concept! I'm sure so many displaced animals see our highways as the "wilderness"; I often do, too! Happy New Year!
You know, that color of blue you use a lot, matches your eye color! How interesting! I just noticed it. Beautiful painting, Lolo!!!
Quite poignant actually... I remember when living in the Chicago area...seeing a coyote walking along the on-ramp to the expressway...granted there was a forest preserve rimming the highway...but it really took my breath away...:) Another wonderful illo Lolo!
I really like the way you've painted this - the perspective is great! An original take on the theme too - clever you! So sorry - have been unable to visit as much as I would have liked last week and you have several posts with lovely stuff!! Love your desk flanked by your kitties and that window is superb! The book from kj looks like I need to check it out, the card from Suki, well, that's terrific isn't it, such a smart oriental look and all those goodies from Margaret, lucky duck!!
I love it Laurel, he looks like he rules the world.xoxo
And how you know I love you.xoxoxo
Love the perspective, and thank God for Land Trusts!
Oh, it is so nice to be back at your lovely, lovely blog!!!! LOVE the snowy header of your awesome birds!!!! Your painting is so nice too, always an awesome job. I envy that beautiful workspot you have, it is truly heavenly!!!!
coyotes now urban and deer too nice image of that contradiction
That's a lovely one!!!Ithink that's another kind of wilderness in front of him......I think he prefers to turn around....I love everything that you create and this one is no exeption!hugs!>M<
I also love the way he is on a hill and the background is low - what talent you have. and I agree with KJ - he looks like a friendly coy.
Well, I'm glad for that. (the conservation land) I do worry that the wildlife is running out of wild. Lovely depicion of "wilderness". I think the wilderness is beneath him!
It goes without saying, I like this latest entry here but it's your play on words that really had me smiling this morning. I loved the tale, tails/trails bit. :-)
Every bit counts.xoxox
Great sense of movement and composition to this! And like your studio setup with the big window...
You speak the sad truth. I love the perspective and feel of this piece. Powerful!
a most excellent illustration, laurel!
I had to return and share the story of local coyotes in the city park, now wandering into neighborhoods and golf course out of curiosity and food (small pets and pet food left out), thus officials are now setting traps and shooting them. It's a damn shame (and crime) in my opinion....sorry to share bad news. On a good note: a cougar and a bear that once found their way to the same park (separate times), managed to escape without any harm....
Beautiful! He really does look like a regal coyote, way up there. You know what came to mind after I saw this? Do you remember those old commercials with the old Indian chief, and he's looking at all the trash around him, and a tear rolls down his cheek? Well, yeah. But I like your coyote much better. He makes me smile.
