                                  6" x 6" Oil on Canvas

Day Twenty - 30 in 30 Challenge (2/3 of the way there!)

Knowing today would be a short one in the studio, I should have known better than to take on a panther!  Ok,  so another palm tree and more water  then started on the cat.  Oh My Goodness - it did not go well - details this small  need a smooth surface - not duck canvas especially working wet into wet!

I am eager to paint a panther on a large canvas - these little ones are making me crazy!

The Florida panther is an endangered subspecies of cougar that lives in forests and swamps of southern Florida.  Only 80 to 100 panthers still remain in Florida, making this one of the most rare and endangered mammals in the world.  We humans are the their biggest threat.  It's sad to say Florida panthers are killed by cars and trucks, and although it's against the law - hunters also still shoot panthers occasionally.
