Thanks Mark, this is the first time I started to work at a large scale on card art. It also became a coffee mug, and would have been a Denim Jacket had it not been to complex for the engraver. Definately a fun painting to create and research the materials for it. Peter Paul Rubens was my role-model for this one. I studied the movement he gave his animals and his composition. I'm always amazed at what one can learn the more they stare at the Old Masters work.

Excellent painting Alan, lots of depth and dynamism.Very dramatic.

Art at its best.
