"This painting was done after research about Isle Royale, a small, isolated island near Upper Peninsula, Michigan. It is home to a unique predator-prey relationship between wolves and moose. The two species have had virtually no human interaction, as the island is protected by national park status, and there is little migration of animals into and out of the island. The unique single predator, single prey allows for precise research on predator-prey relationships and of the fluctuation of the two populations. Since 1958, scientists have conducted an ongoing study of these two animals.
