Hercules - Oil on Canvas - 28" x 36"
(Prints available from Shop)
Hercules was a Snow Leopard who fell victim to the trend for wild animals in the entertainment industry. He ended up unwanted and displaced, until rescued by "Big Cat Rescue" in Florida. There he lived, not the life he should have, but a relatively long and happy one for his circumstances. I did this Portrait for their Annual Fur Ball fund raiser in 2012. Sadly Hercules died during the time I was doing it and they kept it in his memory.
