Watercolor painting of a jaguar in the southwest desert by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Throne of the Jaguar

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 20.5″h x 26″w, 1991.

Joshua Tree National Park is a unique desert filled with gigantic, deeply eroded rocks that have weathered into interesting shapes. I am attracted and fascinated with rocks, so I depicted some of those common qualities of Joshua Tree National Park in this painting, and I placed a jaguar upon a throne-like rock to give a sense of size. Though Jaguars no longer roam the park, not too long ago they roamed and hunted those lands.
