Watercolor painting of wolf in landscape next to a creek by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Gentle Waters Soothe My Soul

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 16 3/4″h x 28 1/2″w, 1994.

I prefer to paint wolves that are peaceful or content since that is most likely how they are for the majority of their day. This artwork shows a wolf resting contently beside East Boulder Creek in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, south of Callahan, Siskiyou County, CA. This was one area my husband and I regularly hiked to it. I wanted to capture the contentment the area gave me, so I created that quality in this painting. In a sense, the wolf is reflecting my ease whenever I was at that place.
