Desperation by CristinaPenescu Desperation by CristinaPenescu
"Desperation"
Wolf
Scratchboard & Airbrush, 16x20

This piece was inspired by a number of things, most importantly the recent 2009 open season on wolves in the United States. Is this wolf crying out in defiance? Anger? Anguish? You decide.

This piece has been shortlisted for the DSWF "Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010" exhibition and has been sold.

I have to admit, countless suggestions pertaining to various interpretations of this self-same subject have come my way, and this piece, Desperation by *CristinaPenescu, is the first where I was truly wowed. Clarity is bursting at the seams here, where almost every clump and wisp of hair seems magnified and sharpened, the entire image bathed in a penetrating spotlight... simply impeccable.

This has been one of my most favorite pieces since I can remember. I see it stolen so often and it makes me furious every single time. All of your work is absolutely mind blowing, your ability to capture things as realistically as you do in incredible. Every piece of yours is a masterpiece and could be featured in any of the "wildlife artist" exhibits around the world. I wish you the best and I hope you never stop making art! <3
