“Eyes on the Prize” Original Mountain Lion Oil Painting by Ryan Kirby
The older I get, the more I appreciate the role of predators in nature, as well as the opportunity to paint them. Secretive and largely solitary by nature, the mountain lion lives in some of the roughest mountain terrain and hunts a variety of prey. Here, he’s locked in on a much smaller meal, keeping his eyes on the prize as he closes the distance over new fallen snow.
