"Uncas," 5 x 7 watercolor, 300 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold press paper
The last one...as with any species, there will always be a lone remainder...traveling its universe without kin.
It happened to the mammoths, the Neanderthals. It will happen to humans. And unicorns will become extinct when there is no belief. No paintings.
Against stormy skies, magic fading. Uncas.
A fave former student suggested a unicorn painting in this series, titled "Unicurmudgeon." Fitting. Idea from another artist's vision.
So it is--Uncas.
(Uncas? Look it up, James Fenimore Cooper)
