Cougar Wildlife Oil Painting "Faces of Nature Series" by Washington Artist Mary Jo Zorad

Majestic, elegant and stealthy,
from the golden peaks I observe
my quarry beneath the pine tops
unaware of my vigilance and hunger.
K Schilling 
On one occasion was I graced to see a wild cougar sitting in the driveway of my neighbors home when I lived in CA.  It was a young cougar just sitting on the asphalt.  I like to believe it was enjoying the early morning, but I suspect it was looking for breakfast.

From the style of my Painted Pony Pulls in 2006 came the creation of several commissioned pieces of buffalo and wolves.  This is  a wolf painting done in 2007.  There are only three of these ever done. This technique was developed uniquely by the artist Laurie Pace in 2006 and you can read about it on her website.

Ruth Andre Painting-Doe

When I go out to feed the horses I see a family of deer under the apple tree.  They don't seem to mind my movements around the horses and are content to munch on the fallen green apples.   Enjoy!

I live in the foothills of northern California and there are deer grazing in our pasture daily. The deer are beautiful to watch as they head for the creek for a drink. Seeing nature up close makes for, "A Painting Day".

Ruth Andre Painting-The Great White

The white buffalo is revered as being a sacred symbol to many Indian tribes. It is awe inspiring to see a white buffalo. I can only imagine what it must of been like to see a great white buffalo surrounded by the dark brown hides of the others in the herd living wild on the plains. The white buffalo has special meaning to me. I have felt its spiritual essence. Seeing the Great White made for, "A Painting Day".
