I want them to experience the same split-second reaction I had. An instantaneous, in-your-face feeling.
Watertown, SD (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
International award-winning wildlife artist, Joshua Spies, recently released his new Mule Deer piece, "The Pursuit."
Joshua's inspiration for this piece came from his own hunting experiences.
"I hope they will feel the same emotion I did when I first came upon this scene," Spies said. "I want them to experience the same split-second reaction I had. An instantaneous, in-your-face feeling. A feeling of awe and excitement and wonder."
Although the original artwork is already sold, there are limited edition signed and numbered prints available now at http://www.joshuaspies.com
