It is World Wildlife Day!  Miriam’s Art is pleased to exhibit her Mountain Lion pastel painting.  This is a 12×18″ original pastel painting.  Enjoy!

Since 2013 the United Nations has set this day as World Wildlife Day.  This year it honors big cats.  The cougar, puma or mountain lion is considered a big cat because of it’s prowess as a hunter.  So, following Josh Gross’ lead in The Jaguar I have decided to exhibit my artwork of a mountain lion to commemorate this day and to raise awareness that many animal species are at the brink of extinction.  We need to address issues of climate change and deforestation to protect wildlife. While the mountain lion is not endangered it is in a vulnerable state in most of North America.
