It is late afternoon, and the sun is glowing through the tops of the Douglas firs. It is time for the mother cougar and her kits to venture out for the evening hunt. This particular scene shows an ecosystem with which I am very familiar. In fact, it surrounds our home. On the southwestern mountain slopes, which pick up the afternoon sun, one finds the Garry oak savannah and open parkland with grasses and wildflowers under the trees. In the valleys and northeastern slopes grow the Douglas fir, cedar and hemlock spruce. This blend is just right for the cougar family, providing shelter and cover for rest, plus open areas affording good vantage points. It is also a perfect place for cougar kits to play. - RB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones.
