Description:
* JOHN SEEREY-LESTER (BRITISH), THE SPINNING WHEEL pastel, signed and dated '79 52cm x 52cm Note: It was in 1980, after making his first trip to East Africa, that John began painting images of the natural world. His respect for the work of fellow English artist, David Shepherd, heavily influenced his decision to travel to Africa and paint wildlife. This became a turning point in his career. In 1982 John moved to the United States. He signed with Mill Pond Press the following year. Since then he has had some 300 limited edition prints published. Many of these have sold out within days of release. Global demand for his original works remains strong and although he's best known for his wildlife art, he still paints a variety of subject matter.

According to John Seerey-Lester, “I was inspired to dothis painting after a field trip through a northern forest with myson one February day after a heavy fall of snow. Although we didn’’’’’’’’t see the bobcat at that time, we did see tracks leadingto where it had been sitting under a tree. Recreating the scenethat might have been, I depicted the bobcat lookingintently out across a frozen lake from under snow-laden pine at theedge of the forest. He is keeping a keen watch for any sign ofmovement that could be possible prey.” Literature: John Seerey-Lester, Face to Face withNature (Venice, Florida: Mill Pond Press, 1991), page 41, illustrated.
