Can you find the word "Joy" in the fur?

The word "Joy" in the fur was actually in my original reference of this particualr Snow Leopard.

When composing this painting, I knew right away that I wanted gentle falling snowflakes orchestrated in a way that the viewer could “feel” a gentleness and sense of silence surrounding this Snow Leopard. One of the hardest things to paint was the snowflakes. I had never studied or painted snowflakes before this painting, so I thought fuzzy little white things would be appropriate. When painting the snowflakes, it became very apparent that your eye picks up a lot more than you think you see. I had to study snowflakes. It also became complicated because the snowflakes had to be orchestrated to coincide with the Snow Leopard in different sizes and directions, subtle but deliberate. I love the feeling of this painting and how the Leopard is looking up to the heavens. After I finished the painting someone asked me if I had seen the word “Joy” In the fur. I had not. I saw and painted this word as shapes. I looked back at my original reference of this Snow Leopard and sure enough the word “Joy” is in the fur. - Michael Pape

Native to the Central Asian mountains, the majestic and ghostly Snow Leopard is a rare sight. With about only 4,000 - 6,000 of these animals left in the wild they are an endangered species. They are hunted and poached for their beautiful, warm fur and for their organs, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Without more education and stricter laws to protect them, these beautiful, magnificent cats only have a Ghost of a Chance to survive.

About Michael Pape Giclée Limited Edition Prints

Giclée (Gee-Clay)

Giclée is a state of the art digital technology that has made it possible to create a fine art print that is extremely difficult to distinguish from the original painting or drawing. Giclées are available on archival acid free watercolour paper and or canvas. Michael Pape Giclées use pigment longevity inks and have a lifetime warranty. Each limited edition giclée is numbered and hand-signed by the artist. Read More

Giclée - Regular Edition is a regular signed and numbered limited edition, based off the artist proof. 

Giclée - Artist Proof Edition is a signed and numbered limited edition. An Artist Proof is the process of the artist manually matching the original painting colour to the limited edition giclée print colour. For example the pupil of an animals eye may be slightly darker on one Artist Proof than another. Each Artist Proof is slightly different in colour. An original if you will. Many artists charge a 20% premium because of this. Artist Proof Editions are usually limited to 10% (20 prints) of the Regular Edition (200 prints) for example. They are the most sought after limited edition by collectors.

Giclée - Conservation / Publisher Proof Edition are what charities offer for Fundraising.
