Standing Ground - American Bison, 8x10" Pastel on paper.
Did you know our national mammal, aka the largest land mammal in North America - the American Bison is a keystone species? American Bison use to live across our prairie lands in the millions – some say up to 30 million bison once roamed at a time. And by grazing, they helped stimulate plant growth while their hooves packed in the soil and opened up new areas for seeds to take root. Pretty cool, huh?
This pastel painting is of an American Bison. Colors vary from screen to screen but the dominant colors in this painting are shades of purple, green and the bright mustard yellow background. This painting ships flat, unframed.
