Without any doubt, big cats are the favorite subject of most wildlife artists. There is mystery in these creatures, and their relationship with the house cat is very obvious. But the main thing that attracts me is the cat’s eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye.”

In my other cat paintings, I felt that I never had the opportunity to enjoy painting the eyes. The only way to do this was to make a big close-up of a cat face. Then I could work with the reflections in the cat’s eyes, which show its habitat, and with some fantasizing, one could imagine something that fascinates the animal in that landscape.

The Canada lynx was the obvious choice. He represents the North, and the North is vast, mysterious and wild, with lots of creatures that speak to one’s imagination.
