Too Close for Comfort by Bill Scheidt

Bill Scheidt composes a landscape entitled "Too Close for Comfort" using the relationship between the plains buffalo and a contentious adversary, the coyote.  The deft composition is at once active; as the smaller of the two attempts to harm and ultimately kill the buffalo.

The very believable composition uses historic colors reminiscent of earlier artists that traveled the west to explore its habitat and terrain.   The muted grasslands and the distant horizon complete with a herd of buffalo grazing in the lowland and near the mountains are secondary, yet supportive to the story and its environment.
