Coyote, 11x14 on Maple Wood (SOLD but available as a custom order)
Animals give us a window into our ancient selves - the way they move through their homelands; leave signs of communication for each other; live together or separate; hunt, gather and prepare for the changing of seasons… it’s easy to see empathize with our fellow creatures, see how we evolved from them, and also see ourselves, including our very human idiosyncrasies, in them.
Coyote is found widely in Native cultures throughout North America. In some cultures, Coyote is the Creator or has powerful roles such as creating fire, teaching people the arts of civilization, and helping create a useful and functional world. Many West Coast tribes saw Coyote this way, yet his dominant role, especially in Interior Salish and many Northwest tribes was that of the Trickster - the clever, spunky fellow who tricked and out-smarted people and other animals. This is a digitally modified photograph so that the image looks like a painting. I often work in this medium, which takes a lot of time and experimentation, and I love it for certain images. It creates an artsy and unique look. I typically print this image on maple wood, making the print even more artistic with striations of the wood grain showing through the image, but it is available on metal, thin wrap, canvas or as fine art print for your framing - in any size. Shipping included in price.
