LAARA CASSELLS UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
16” x 20” — Acrylic $1,950
To me there are few creatures more captivating than a wolf. Once hunted almost to extinction, the timber wolf is making a comeback due mostly to our increased understanding of their vital role in the health of our ecology. My series of wolf paintings are a tribute to this amazing breed. My images are my personal, artistic interpretation of the natural world and I like them to be clear and descriptive. In this particular painting, I wished to capture the big male’s inscrutable expression. He was staring at me for the longest time and I was able to catch the look in his eye. I was glad to have a long lens as I did not wish to get any closer!
