Artist's Description


FEATURED 3-1-2011

THIS SHOT OF “DEOGEE SHAWNA WHITE WOLF”, WAS TAKEN ON MY PATIO, IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA,,,,WHEN SHE WAS JUST 10 WEEKS OLD. FOR SOME REASON, SHE LIKED LAYING IN PUDDLES, MAYBE SHE NEEDED TO COOL OFF, AFTER ALL THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN IN JUNE OF 1992. I COULDN’T RESIST THIS SHOT WITH THE REFLECTION OF HER FACE IN THE WATER. DEOGEE GREW UP TO BE A GREAT ARCTIC WOLF HYBRID COMPANION, MOTHER AND MATE. SHE MADE IT 13 YEARS 2 MONTHS AND 2 DAYS. I HAD HER FOR EXACTLY 13 YEARS AND 2 DAYS WHEN I HAD TO HAVE HER PUT TO SLEEP BECAUSE OF A TUMOR ON HER SPLEEN THAT RUPTURED HER SPLEEN. IF I HADN’T HAD HER YOUTHENIZED SHE WOULD HAVE SLOWLY BLEAD TO DEATH OVER THE NEXT HOUR AFTER THE RUPTURE AND I COULDN’T LET THAT HAPPEN. AS MUCH AS I HATED TO DO IT, I KNEW IT WAS BEST FOR HER SO SHE DIDN’T SUFFER ANY MORE THAN NECESSARY. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE SASHA AND CHEWBACCA NOW, I STILL MISS HER. MY TRUSTY CANON WAS AT MY SIDE FOR THIS SHOT, ONLY IT WAS MY EOS 620 35MM FILM CAMERA AND MY CANON 100-200MM TELEPHOTO LENS. I HAD TO SCAN THE FILM IMAGE OF THIS SHOT INTO MY COMPUTER BEFORE I COULD GET IT HERE ON THE BUBBLE. I KNEW THAT IF I LIKED IT SO MUCH, MORE ARTISTS SHOULD LIKE IT ALSO. SO FAR, I’M NOT FEELING BAD ABOUT HOW MANY ARTISTS ARE ENJOYING “DEOGEE”, AS MUCH AS I AM. IN THIS SHOT, I USED THE SMUDGE FILTER FROM MY ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0 PROGRAM, IN ORDER TO SMUDGE OUT THE CONCRETE PATIO AND THE LAWN. THAT WAY, I CAN CONCENTRATE ON THE MAIN SUBJECT AND NOT BE DISTRACTED BY A STAIN ON THE PATIO OR A LAWN THAT NEEDS TO BE MOWED.
