  • Handmade
  • Materials: Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper


NOTE: I'd love to explain my process. I use really old original vintage photos and my goal is to make whimsical creatures look as real as possible. If the original photo is weathered, textured, discolored, even a bit blurry, I keep those interesting features because it adds uniqueness to the finished work : )

I was deeply moved and angered by the recent murder of Cecil the lion this summer by a heartless hunter who paid to have him lured out of a preserve so he could shoot him with a bow and arrow. Cecil fled after being shot and it took the hunting team 40 hrs. to locate his body... Cecil lay suffering for countless hours. Game hunting or "trophy hunting" continues as a major tourist attraction for many countries.

This print was done in honor of Cecil and all of the animals who lost their lives and will lose their lives in order to feed the ego of man. The quote on the print is from Henry Beston and it reads:

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”

You may choose to not have the quote on the print. Just select your preference in the "Quote Option" dropdown box under the price.

All my work is created in my little rural home studio in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

This looks great on my wall. I bought it because it was called “ sisters howling” and there are 5 of us sisters with no brothers. Each one looked like a personality of us. Lol!

I’ve purchased a lot of prints off Etsy, but these are the first I’ve received where I’m disappointed with the quality. Prints look like something I could have printed from a 1 hour service and images look a little blurry.

Response from Muriel McDonald

Hi Patricia. I appreciate your feedback. The photos I use for my art are real vintage photographs which are products of the time in which they were taken. Some are scratched, some are stained and some are blurry. It's my desire to make the photograph look as real as possible and so I match the "animal" part to the vintage part, flaws and all. I believe it's what makes these characters come to life; and as you can see by reading other reviews of my work, this is what others appreciate as well. All my work is professionally printed with the highest of standards and the print shown on the computer screen is exactly what the buyer should expect (which is conveyed by the 449 five star reviews of my work.) I wish you all the best. Sincerely, Muriel McDonald
