Many regard black panthers as symbols of death, darkness, and rebirth. Hence, a primitive fear exists towards cougars. In Meditation, Parkes paints an angel resting her forehead against the chest of a majestic cougar. Its powerful stance and strong features are animated through delicate brushstrokes and distinct shading.
The angel appears to be deriving strength and peace from the panther. The energy and companionship the pair exude signify that the feline has always served as her protector and confidante.
Meditation is a lovely giclée on paper that punctuates the artist’s range of creativity. Hues of ivory, sand, and copper on German etching paper bring this picture to life. Parkes showcases his uncanny ability to capture and control the intensity of each artistic detail using subtle color variations and precise brushwork. This giclée on paper deserves pride of place on a wall in a grand room.
