Late Afternoon by Edward Aldrich
Edward Aldrich is one of today's most collected wildlife artists. The artist believes that conveying the inherent being of an animal is integral to his work. The viewer is not left to simply look and appreciate, but is drawn into experiencing the essence of what is being depicted. In this image, the artist has captured the elusive quality of one of nature's most beautiful cats, the cougar. Taking a solitary moment of rest, the big cat surveys the landscape. This stealth hunter takes his solace as the sun sets and quiet shadows overtake his rugged domain.
