A cow elk wades into a cool pond, her calf swimming beside her, finding relief from heat and insects.

Cool relief is one reward from my endless search for uniqueness in nature, to be shared through my art.
Conflict! Two powerful animals so representative of the perpetual battles in nature, vying for territory, for control, for sex. A creation of my own imagination, I did not witness the "Battling Bulls"; the image is based on my experience with the nature of any one of the many species I could have depicted.
