Red Cloud

Red Cloud was an American bison, who resided on a ranch in Ohio. I don't think that I have ever been so impressed with any other animal. He was huge, yet more agile than a horse. He seemed quite curious, and almost appeared to study people. Well, no almost about it, he did study people. I was quite upset to find that he is no longer living.

This is oil on hard wood panel, size 30 by 38 inches. The paint is rather impasto, except for the dark areas, and makes use of a limited palette.
