Buffalo / Bison

Sparrow Avenue, Buffalo/Bison
I'm loving my Buffalo/Bison image for all the different items that I make. He has a powerful presence with the strong black textures of his wooly coat. Do you know the difference between Buffaloes and Bison? Buffaloes refer to the Water Buffaloes of India and Bison are the North American animal. But I write both terms for those who might not know.

  1. Your bison really is exceptional. From the beard to the curly hair over the hump and shoulders, to the shorter hair on the rest of the body, he looks authentic. Lovely textures throughout.

  2. thank you so much, Laurene.
    When I saw them back in the spring it really helped to get a sense of their powerful presence.
