Eye the tiger. . . or else it could be you that’s what’s for dinner. This curious Bengal tiger is enjoying a swim and is twisting its ears towards the source of its interest. Unlike most cats, tigers enjoy the water and are never found far from it. Tigers are fantastic swimmers. Tigers back into the water as they do not like splashing water into their eyes. They are good swimmers and often cool off in pools or streams.
We need to keep our eyes on the endangered dwindling tiger population as we stand in danger of losing this majestic animal. Its habitat continues to shrink due to expanding human populations and poaching increases.
It is imperative that the rich lush emerald green rain forests are saved as it supports the amazing diversity of life. Without action, as we look forward another century, we will be without majestic tigers, intelligent orangutans, many other primates and thousands of other plants and animals.
Within my artwork I hope to invite viewers to create their own special relationship with the endangered wildlife living in the rain forests. In the world of wildlife art, nature and art have always been inseparable for me especially for wildlife subjects at the edge of extinction.
