The King Finally Sleeps

Bunny Clarke

Vista, United States

Artist's Description

Living around wildlife most of my life, I came to appreciate the cycle of life. No matter what species we are, it is the same. We are born and frail. We mature and are challenging. We get old and frail. Many an old bull elk or old Mule eared buck just silently go off after losing a challenge and his harem and quietly lie down to die. They don’t eat or drink until the end comes. Not all of them do this, but I have observed a few. I think of that in terms of how we go through our own cycles and see some similarities. Savor life while you still have vigor. Tell the ones you love how much you care. :o)
Created in Photoshop Touch from an old photo from my Colorado days. I wanted this to look as if it was in the beginning of a blizzard so the look would be more bleak and emotional.
