Ancient Trails

They stand on the brink! Once eradicated from the western United States and with man’s assistance are making a comeback. They are truly following an ancient trail.

This work is one of several compositions I have considered regarding the subject of the reintroduction of wolves. Almost subliminally, wolf tracks fall before the two figures though not as one might anticipate. These are not concave, but protruding as rough “rocks” and their scale is perhaps indicative of the challenge before the wolf . . . and man as well. No small controversy rages about the wolf, but the magnitude of their effect and the depth of lore surrounding them will impact us in both reality and imagination.
