Hope Springs Eternal

Amur Leopard... the rarest big cat currently living on earth. They are critically endangered, with less than 40 thought to exist in the wild. Hope is waning, but there is still a chance for these beautiful cats. Hope springs eternal.

If this painting sells, I plan to donate a portion of the sale price to AMUR / ALTA to help even a small amount with the conservation efforts
AMUR: http://www.amur.org.uk/
ALTA: http://www.altaconservation.org/
If you can't donate, don't despair. It is hard to afford it, I understand. Even just raising awareness helps endangered species. The more people that care, or even are aware, the better the chance something can be done.

8" x 10" Acrylic on board.

A very special thanks goes out to Wade Tregaskis, who kindly gave permission for me to use his photo as an inspiration/reference for this painting.

    This feline is lovely. It is a shame that they are so few in number in the wild.

    The eyes and fur detailing are just mind-blowing.
