Down to Drink

Down to Drink___6x8 oil on linen panel___$190 still wet!
Our neighborhood coyote hung around here all afternoon, yesterday, it seems. You know how once you see something cool, you are always on the look-out to see it again whenever you are near the same place? So, ever since I saw the coyote a couple weeks ago (on the day my son signed a scholarship letter to play college football for the Kansas Wesleyan Univ. Coyotes!)....I have looked for the coyote in that same place ever since...yesterday he was there! In the same area, a narrow greenbelt between houses where there often is water. Yesterday there was no water, but I painted it anyway. Brushy Creek is not too far from here, so there is plenty for this guy to drink.
While I photographed, I called my son who was at home and told him to come see...that is his truck below, with one Coyote eyeing the other!

Coyote Meets Coyote_____

Your Coyote paintings and stories have been fun to follow. I especially like this one. I think I see a demand coming from KWU for Coyote paintings. Can't your mom paint just one more, please? Hee Hee I was just "pinged" by word verification. :0)

If one could teach the other how to hold a ball and vice versa, run with four legs, they would make the best players.

A real winner, V. Or should I say two. No, better make that three.

You do an amazing job of capturing the likeness and spirit of animals in your work!
