This is a gouache watercolor on board by Kenneth Ferguson.  It is entitled, “Face to Face (American Bison)“.  It is on board and finished with crystal clear archival acrylic varnish, which seals the painting off from the environment and provides strong UV protection, so there’s no need for glass.  It is perfectly framed in a classic wood frame.

Kenneth says of this piece,

“This painting depicts an American Bison. These massive yet nimble creatures easily hold their place as “Monarchs of the Plains.” At 5′ to 6.5′ tall at the shoulder, and sometimes weighing over a ton, they can move at speeds of up to 40 mph. At the same time, they maintain a stately grace when gathered in peaceful herds across the short grass prairies of North America. “

Kenneth comments on his paintings, “Much of my work pertains to history and nature; often of the American West — and specifically, the people and animals that made their home on the Great Plains. Through my paintings, I shake the dust off the past and present these traditional subject matters in a more vivid, contemporary way. My interest might be the 19th century but I paint it as a 21st-century artist.”
