Light and Shadow
ORIGINAL OIL by Linda Besse - 17" X 26"

Just like parents are supposed to have no favorite children, maybe wildlife artists are supposed to equally enjoy all the earth’s creatures. Well, I have to admit I am most partial to leopards. It is not only their beautiful coat which draws my attention. The versatility of climates they can inhabit, their stealth, their incredible strength per pound make this my favorite big cat - and animal.
