Many nights we wake up to the sound of the coyotes howling in the field near the house – or sometimes much closer than that, just outside the backyard fence. The dogs go racing out the dog door to the safety of the backyard, but absolutely showing them who’s boss. I have respect for the coyote as he is a survivor and very ingenious when he’s hungry. This painting is 10 x 12 and will be in the Settlers West “American Miniature Show” in Tucson on February 11th. The show is really great. Don’t miss it!
