Sable in Moonlight
(scroll down for description)
12” x 24”, acrylic, 2000

The sable is to me as it was to Ernest Hemingway (but for different purposes) an almost mythic animal. I have only seen it once. Sable males weigh about 500 lbs and with their huge, scimitar shaped horns they can even fend off a lion attack.

This male is on the alert during this moonlit night. It is the time of danger for his harem of females and young.
