Cuacuara Dogwood - Cougar skull with Dogwood Flowers

Acrylic, 2011

Cuacuara Dogwood - Cougar skull with Dogwood Flowers. Painting of a Cougar (Cuacuara) skull with dogwood flowers in a west coast forest in Canada. I have encountered many cougar while hiking the back country in Canada. Cuacuara is the Indigenous name for cougar. The dogwood is the provincial flower of British Columbia and the Douglas Fir and cedar trees dominate the west coast trails. This is a very 'BC' painting.
