Wildlife painting can be dangerous at the best of times, but this piece was particularly hazardous to produce. Nice hike though, you can see Thumb Butte in the background, a landmark of the Prescott area.
So did I win the contest? Nope, I wasn't even considered. The guy said to me "That's too many claws." I said "They're not claws they're feathers" he said "Yeah, but why so many claws?"
...I shouldn't enter contests.
