This would be quite startling if you were on horseback pulling your packhorse up a narrow mountain pass. Two baby Mountain Lion cubs in your path. It is not the cute cubs that you have to worry about it is their mother sneaking up on you. Anyway, This is a nice watercolor painting on artist board. Signed by Colorado artist Bob Hayes in the lower right corner. The painting is in great condition. Painting measures 16 inches wide and 24 inches tall. Set in a nice frame that measures 22 inches wide and 30 inches tall. The painting is not behind glass. If you would like a new back paper, please let me know and I will have one put on free of charge.

He returned to art full time (after his tour of duty) by attending the Colorado Institute of Art for four years. He has worked as a commercial artist throughout his life, including in the Graphics Department of the United States Air Force Academy where he worked for 15 years until he retired in 1996.
