The Defender

I haven’t painted in a while. For some reason, the inspiration hasn’t been there. I’ve been tired and even though I’ve had a bunch of ideas dancing around in my head, I just haven’t had the energy to get out the paints…until last night. I’ve been rolling this image around for some time. I did a pretty detailed sketch, but when it came time to paint, I wanted it wild!

This isn’t a great photo of it, but you can get the idea. I love the image of the wolf as defender. The fierceness and the power combine with the beauty of the animal to create something quite primal…
