Wendy PalmerAFC, IGOR Nature Artist - Wildlife, Landscape and Floral
2010 Alberta Artist of the Year
Wendy Palmer is extremely honored that her painting "Winter Fox Trot" has been selected by Ducks Unlimited as the 2010 Alberta Artist of the Year. Inspiration for "Winter Fox Trot" originated near Wendy's home as it is nestled against a wetland area located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies in Alberta. Wendy's family and her neighbors share this area with numerous Alberta wildlife, including many species that migrate through their small haven at nature's specified time of the season. They are fortunate to have a year round companion nestled in the brush near Wendy's home, a little Red Fox. Watching him during the seasons and how he adapts to his natural environment is truly enlightening. His sly, cautious visits are mutual exchanges of curiosity that they experience together. His random stays at numerous dens in the area always worries Wendy as to whether or not he has survived another week from predators. It is with relief that she spots him again, trotting through the prairie grass or snow. He seems so lonesome, yet so fascinating, this mysterious creature that seems a cross between canines and felines, a truly unique creation.
