Sharing the Land by Tom White 

Sharing the Land

Statement form the artist:

“I love the magnificent beauty of the land here out west.  I came up with the idea of the animals sharing the land with us and with other animals based on what I have experienced out roaming the territory – hiking, hunting and enjoying the great Arizona outdoors.  I always see animals sharing the waterholes near us on game cameras I or my buddies set up.  We will see mountain lions, bears, deer, elk and antelope.  Nothing changes throughout time – we always share the land and water with animals and with the people wherever we live.  I wanted to portray that in this scene “Sharing the Land” by showing the camaraderie at a watering hole.  The animals are not threatening each other, but respecting each other for the sake of life!”
