Lynx On The Rocks
Painting - Acrylic
Lynx are probably around Eastern Kentucky but more probably never seen,
they blend too much into the local scenery to ever have the human eye pick out. He is standing on the rocks, wet from the water as my painting in acrylic portrays him, waiting for an afternoon snack to swim by.
For this acrylic painting I had to use a little imagination, they may or may not eat fish, but for the purpose of capturing the mood I was looking for, let's just pretend this one time . Ha Ha Ha...
In Canada lynx eat mice, squirrels, and birds, but prefer the snowshoe hare. The lynx are so dependent on this prey that their populations fluctuate with a periodic plunge in snowshoe hare numbers that occurs about every ten years.
The lynx is a solitary cat that haunts the remote northern forests of North America, Europe, and Asia.
Lynx are covered with beautiful thick fur that keeps them warm during frigid winters.
Their large paws are also furry and hit the ground with a spreading toe motion that makes them function as natural snowshoes.
These stealthy cats avoid humans and hunt at night, so they are rarely seen.
All lynx are skilled hunters that make use of great hearing (the tufts on their ears are a hearing aid) and eyesight so strong that a lynx can spot a mouse 250 feet (75 meters) away.
I painted him just because I think they are a beautiful animal, especially the ears, they are very similar to Bob Cats except for the ears.
