Oil Painting Book Cover

I am experimenting with book covers for my upcoming guide to oil painting (see earlier posts), and here is one idea. It is a large oil on panel painting of a rare melanistic mountain lion, with a deep black color, in a desert canyon. I first heard reports of a black mountain lion by a friend who saw one near Tilden Regional Park in back of the Oakland-Berkeley hills, Contra Costa County, CA. Black mountain lions are apparently somewhat more common in South America.

Rare Black Mountain Lion, 28 x 36 inches, Oil on panel, 1997.


  1. Well, in my opinion this cover is not bad at all. It is different and entertaining. Love to see your oil painting book launch very soon. Even, i can't wait really.:) Wish you great success in your future.
