VERSO
Exhibition label, National Museum of Wildlife Art

Discussing this painting the artist wrote, “It’s pretty easy, living as we do in the Sonoran Desert, to find any desired bit of plant or rock detail within short driving distance. In this simple format I chose to use a defunct agave or century plant as a major design element, with the bobcat and his rocky resting place as the other ingredients. It might be called a still-life, though it isn’t one, strictly speaking.”
