Aurora's mate died of hepatic cancer earlier this year. Her twin cubs will soon be grown, and will be relocated to another zoo. I have painted her portrait to reflect her captivity, She is safe from danger, but not free. The words of Walt Whitman inspire my work: "Oh, to confront night, storms, hunger, Ridicule, accident, rebuffs As the trees and animals do."
