Beautifully reproduced from Jane's original colour Biro drawing 'American Dream'. This artwork was made for the Wolf Conservation Center, New York and auctioned to raise funds for their vital work conserving critically endangered Red and Mexican Gray wolves.
"Winter howls through Yellowstone National Park, sweeping across Ambassador wolf Zephyr’s fur. An intrepid stag plunges through a deep blanket of snow, pursued by wolves, as a bison battles against a blizzard on the plains between the mountains. A mountain bluebird heralds the arrival of spring, as a bear wakes from hibernation and a bison calf is caught in a spring shower, while Alpine flowers blossom on Zephyr’s legs. Summer shimmers on the wings of a monarch butterfly announcing the arrival of Nikai, the Wolf Conservation Center’s newest Ambassador. Nikai listens to the bluebird’s song as bison rut in a summer meadow.
Fall flickers over Zephyr, as a pup, and turns to winter over Alawa, also as a pup and the wolf pack led by Atka return to their winter trail. Atka, the leader of the WCC Ambassador Pack, gleams like the sun on the wings of a monarch butterfly. He watches over Zephyr, Alawa, and Nikai in a landscape where wolves roam free."
With kind thanks to the Wolf Conservation Center's Executive Director Maggie Howell and Curator Rebecca Bose for providing beautiful images of WCC's ambassador wolves as inspiration for this piece.
