The wolf represents a deep connection with instinct, intelligence, and an appetite for freedom. It's been said that when the wolf shows up in your life, pay attention to what your intuition is telling you. While painting this animal series, I've noticed the wolf has shown up quite a few times in my paintings. I've painted him/her more than any other animal. A wolf is definitely not an easy animal to paint; in fact, it is one of the most difficult so far due to the many layers and colors within the coat. I wonder why I've been painting the wolf so much. Perhaps it is a sign for me to pay closer attention to my intuition.
