Trophy #1, 2012, oil & charcoal on wood, 48" x 48"
So, I ask the question...Why not have a very nice painting of an endangered animal on your wall instead of the real thing?? (I do realize that I am being quite hypocritical because I did purchase a zebra skin rug a few years ago from an auction and I love that rug....)This painting could be your "trophy" and not the empty shell of an animal with fake glass eyes. I know when hunters see their "kill" mounted on a wall, they have alot of pride and the memory of the whole hunt will forever be in their mind. I wish this same feeling would go towards art. Where were you when the piece was purchased? How does the work make you feel? Does the piece strike up a converesation amongst your guests??
