A young huskey dreaming of becoming a wolf

Though the bison has stolen my heart, the wolf has been the longest wild love of mine. From the time I was a young child, I have loved everything about wolves. They were the #1 animal I wanted to see on our first trip out west, and while we were unsuccessful in the wild, we did visit the Candy Kitchen Wolf Sanctuary in New Mexico. Now I have spent countless hours watching these beloved creatures in Yellowstone.

As some of you may know, wild wolves have had a particularly rough year. Idaho, Montana and Wyoming have all decided to allow up to 90% of the wolf population to be hunted this year. Wolves have a long standing history as a species of controversy, and this is how it is currently playing out. I have titled this piece "Hope" because it depicts a yearling member of the Wapiti Lake pack, who live deep in the heart of Yellowstone. It is the wolves protected by our National Parks wherein our hope must lie for this species. Hopefully the attitudes and legislation of the future will turn towards acceptance, and allow the population to recover.

"Hope" is a 30"x40" oil finger painting on 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas.
