A Lone Wolf

September 14, 2011

Though it has been mentioned before, Monte was quite fond of the wolf.  A common aspect of Monte’s artwork is that of featuring singular focal points existing in the natural world and these portrayals have included both man and creature.  Later, images will be posted regarding the development of one of Monte’s  most popular pencil drawings and people may be surprised the main character in that piece of artwork is not an animal, but instead a depiction of a fictional mountain man paddling along a peaceful stretch of water in a handmade, birch bark canoe.

The above piece is another recently found drawing, which again, for unknown reasons, Monte did not matte and frame.  He may have not done so because of his discriminating eye and his belief (according to him) he could not accurately recreate a realistic depiction of the wolf.
