The snow leopards at my local zoo had a set of cubs last summer, and I used a few of my photos of them to help create this drawing. I set them in their natural habitat, a high mountaintop in the Himalayas. This is the second in my mother/baby series of drawings.
Snow leopards are very endangered, and a portion of my sales will go to the Rio Grande Zoo for their snow leopard breeding program.
Limited edition prints are available (16″×13″, edition of 30 signed and numbered), and the original is currently being framed.
Drawn in charcoal on smooth bristol paper, 14″×17″, 2010.
