Acrylic, Gold Leaf and Fabric
on Canvas

Painted in the late Fall of 2009, this painting symbolizes the snuggling in we Northerners love to do when the air is crisp and snow is on the edge of the senses. Like a premonition. A rumour.

Here the cub nestles in with mama wolf. In the distance an encampment of tipi’s is gathered near the river, personal hearths billowing a soft smoke into the night sky. The moon watches from overhead, serene and cool.

I love Autumn colours, the richness, the warmth, the slight faded feeling. The calm before the long cold night.
