An original pastel portrait of this beautiful snow leopard cub.
Look at that huge paw! Did you know the extra large paws of a snow leopard are used as a snowshoe?
Here I wanted it to take on a more poignant meaning.
In creating “Fading Footprints”, I hope to highlight the urgent need to protect and preserve these magnificent, elusive creatures, ensuring that their footprints continue to grace the snowy mountains for generations to come.
