Omahkatayo - Mountain Lion, Blackfoot - Hockaday Museum of Art

I've seen mountain lions on our trail cameras so I know they are around, although I've never seen one here in person. I was able to get close to this one, high on a Montana mountain side. They are such sleek, beautiful big cats, and they can move surprisingly fast in total silence. I named this portrait in the Blackfoot language to honor the people of the northern regions where they dwell.


Painted in oils on Belgian linen mounted on Gatorboard panel.
Hand crafted modern champagne gold frame.
