"I have studied the American Bison for nearly 30 years. What I have discovered, many times over, is when a herd of bison run through the fresh powdery snow all you hear is their breathing. Their thundering hooves fall silent. Once numbering 10 million, stretching from Alaska to Mexico, today they number about five hundred thousand." - John Banovich, Artist/Conservationist

John Banovich will present his new original oil painting,"Cat and Mouse" - 32" x 48" Oil on Belgian Linen | Valued $30,000 - $50,000 “Amba,” as he is known to the Udege people of far eastern Russia; strong, silent and deadly, the Siberian Tiger or Amur tiger is perfectly adapted to the land where the jungles of Asia meet the boreal forests of the north. Although larger prey like Sika and Wild Boar make up the main source of this big cats diet, like all cats it seems to have a magnetic draw to anything that moves, making a good old fashion game of “Cat and Mouse,” irresistible. – John Banovich Artist/Conservationist
