Green Wolf Drum by ssantara Green Wolf Drum by ssantara
Green Wolf Drum - Acrylic on a 18 inch Bodhran from Mid East Drums.

Over the years I have seen several different takes on the 'green wolf' ideal. I wanted to try my hand at it and the drum skin lends itself so well....

The piece is for sale at my web site: [link]

Prints of the image are also available on my web site: [link]

Very beautiful! Do you sell the drums themselves or know where to get one? I am looking into it as a gift for my girlfriend. If there are no drums available I'd be very interested in a print!

That's one cool drum. I have a question tho. Does playing the drum damage the painting on the coating?

OMGOooodness This is an absolutely gorgeous piece. The drum i am sure SINGS with such beautiful art stretched across its skin. The feathers are a wonderful touch especially with the hints of green that they have. I wis hI had the money I would so buy this drum today if I could.

I'm glad you went green. I think it would be tempting to render a wolf in autumn colors, as more true to the animal, but the greens and blues here are so vibrant and soothing. [can they be both at once? ;p I think so.]
Bravo!
