ghost of the woods

These big cats are called Puma, Cougar or Mountain Lion. They are solitary animals.  Her power comes as she moves through the world unseen, taking only what she needs, and silently marking territory so conflicts won’t be necessary. She is a ghost of the woods just like your soul is.

 When I lived in the mountains she had her den across the road and down hill a bit. Despite being practically on my doorstep I never, ever saw her. Just paw prints. I use ‘she’ because female seems appropriate.

And…yes….they are facing extinction.

  1. Gretchen this painting is breathtaking. How do you fell about reblog, I would like to share this but only with your permission.

  2. I’m with Holly. Breathtaking. I love the words and the painting. Just gorgeous. Hope you are well.

    • Thanks Gigi. I painted this because of a customer who has been waiting for a puma to show up……so this is my response. Still on the decision block in regards to more surgery. I sent a letter a few days ago

  5. Beautiful, Gretchen. I live in cougar country and have never seen one, though they are around. Ghosts indeed. I’m happy to share my forest with them.

  6. Love the big cats and the large birds. As they make a comeback, I hope we don’t hunt them down again.
