Focus-Cougar

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The hostess was Gail, and she provided great photos to work from

I chose this cougar because of his apparent concentration on something...possibly lunch.
"Concentration" made me think of "focus".... Which led to the title and the goal of this painting.
I tried to keep the majority of the painting soft edged and open to interpretation. The focus, or emphasis, is very selective and limited in area.
I think I was sorta successful with this one...anyhow, it was fun!
