Canadian artist Jan Poynter has combined quintessential elements of the Pacific Coast to create this fictional scene of a cougar approaching a stream on a snow-covered shoreline. Moonlight defines the cougar’s silhouette, and dances on the water and snow. The majestic cat is looking towards the right, as if it has spotted its quarry in the distance. Behind the cougar, subtle shades of blue and gold paint a silent, snow-covered landscape of islands rising up from the calm waters of an inlet. A mountain range spans the horizon, its peaks visible in the moonlight. The moon also illuminates the clouds, and stars fill the gaps between them.
