The European Lynx has been sighted in the Canigou Massif and elsewhere in the Pyrenees until the last 10 years. There is a programme to possibly release other ones back into the wild;
My paintings have brought back to these magnificent creatures to the wonderfully wild mountains of the local area.

Couleur Decor Society
With a French Gallery and Society, Couleur Decor, http://www.couleur-decor.org, I was immersed within Pyrenean landscape, the Fauves legacy and the Catalan culture.
These mountains continue to enthrall and the donkey project continues with 2 weeks spent on location making studies of the one found at the little exquisite village of Evol. This rapidly disappearing animal could again become economical to use them instead of tractors especially on the steep slopes of this mountainous region.
I have felt a strong similarity between these mountains and the Hindu Kush and Himalaya Mountains of my childhood. evol et l’ane ma fille et l’ane monsieur et son ane Evol portait l’ane l’ane et jeune fille l’ane et chat donkeys at vernet
