POUNCE

An A E London Original

As I write this piece has found its forever home.  A panther, mountain lion, puma- all depend on the element of surprise . Here , I wanted to convey the moment right before the action, muscles tensed, whiskers quivering. I chose to use a square canvas and fill it with mostly this cat- the idea that shortly it will leap out of its confines and land, well, you know where...

Anyone with a domestic cat knows how un-domestic they can act. This same look is shared by all cats, large or small, and instinctively, we all know what's about to happen.

Dimensions: 48" x 48"

inspiration
of the creation
My inspiration for this painting came from an incredibly rare encounter Jim had while hiking in the Florida Everglades.

While hiking on a particularly windy day in January, he rounded a turn in the trail and came face to face with one of the estimated six Florida Panthers left in the Everglades- and somehow managed to photograph it!

I was fortunate to study this cat at the Earthfire Institute in Idaho.
