In 2007, Robert spent several wonderful days observing wolf packs in Yellowstone with research volunteers. Late one evening, he spotted a mule deer silhouetted against the illuminated snowy mountains. “There seemed to be a kind of nobility in her pose. Perhaps she sensed that another mule deer was being fed upon by a cougar and two large kits about a mile away. She was lucky that it wasn’t her and it was definitely our lucky evening. I enjoyed depicting the animal subdued by shade with the background fully lit…the opposite to the usual depiction of wildlife in paintings.
As a lifelong artist/naturalist I have always viewed Yellowstone Park as the spectacular headquarters for wildlife in America. This is one of the few places left where large animals live wild and free.”
