Into the Herd by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Into the Herd
Acrylic on canvas. 61 x 61cm. Yet another "cat in action" painting. This one's a commission so I had to stick to the requested pose. I wished I could have painted it slightly larger... so many darned tiny spots!

Shaya! by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Shaya!
Acrylic on canvas. 70 x 60cm. "Shaya" means "to strike" or "attack" in Zulu. I've painted charging lionesses in the past but keep returning to this theme. I can't get enough of the focus and musculature of these amazing cats in action.

Approaching Storm by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Approaching Storm
Acrylic on canvas. 80 x 120cm. The title of this painting could mean one of two things: The inclement weather, or the potential storm that the lion might bring to a pride of antelope.

Dusty by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Dusty
Acrylic on canvas. 45 x 45cm. This is a portrait of my friend Lisa's Australian Shepherd. And yes, dogs do smile!

Acrylic on canvas. 50 x 50cm. Timber wolf in an aggressive pose.

Thank you for the DD for "Ghost of the North"!
I spent some time in a large enclosure with two captive male snowy owls- photographing and observing them. At first they were somewhat agitated by my presence and flew over my hunched form in a threatening way. After a while, when they realized I wasn't presenting any danger to them, the quietly took position in the furthest corner away from me, watching me with those magnificent yellow eyes. I sat there with a huge grin on my face, exhilarated by the experience. My most profound memory is of how quiet the owls were in flight- their wings hardly making any sound at all! With "Ghost of the North", I tried to capture that moment of silent flight with the wraith-like owl suspended in space.
