Cheetah Dash

Oil on linen, 2012 840mm x 660mm IUCN Status: Vulnerable Pop. Trend: Decreasing With thanks and credit to photographer, Kevin Clifford, who took the original photograph and gave me permission to use the image as reference for this painting. The picture was taken at Animal Ark, an animal sanctuary in Reno, Nevada, USA. Cheetahs are allowed to run regularly as it has been found this prolongs their life in captivity.
