Moose by Moonlight

Artist and educator Suzanne Tevlin’s moose works are a mixed media delight. Moose by Moonlight is a diptych in pastel, ink & acrylic wash on a vintage map of First Nations and early European settlements in North America. It’s 48″ X 62″ on Fabriano paper.

Moose are large, and so are her works. I Have Called You By Your Name; You are Mine (above) is 48″ X 68,” dry pastel, acrylic wash and charcoal in a shadow box frame. Tevlin has captured a sense of the historic place of the moose in Canada in these pieces. The map in the background of this one is a loose rendition of a 1722 map of Nouvelle France.

    These images capture the size, strength and majestic quality of the moose.
    There is also a human overtone that says to me: we should love and protect these fabulous creatures.
