Description This painting brings attention to the ever important predator/prey relationship in Nature. As you look closely in the aspen leaves, youll see footprints of animals critical to the wolves survival in the West. Clockwise from bottom left, there are moose, bison, mule deer, elk, snowshoe hare, jack rabbit and bighorn sheep all herbivores woven perfecting into the tapestry of life as are predators who keep their populations viable and in balance. Also worth special note is the wolf family group or pack. In the leaves and shadows, Ive placed the outlines of nine wolves, including two wolf pups, throughout the image. As expressed in this painting, Im passionate about our natural world and believe it is worthy of our thoughtful preservation. Please join me in honoring the wolf, forever the epitome of wildness.

To honor our relationship with the natural world, I paint the space between the threads that weave together the beautiful tapestry of biodiversity. My work reflects the quiet connection of one life to another, and the intricate ways in which we impact our planet and are impacted by it.
Please join me in celebrating our connection to nature! ~ Rebecca Richman
