In this painting, The Uninvited Guest, a femal Bengal tiger is cruising through somones yard in India....I included a child's  toy car in the painting to give a feeling of tension and vunerablitity that one might feel in the presence of an apex predator like the tiger...especially the vunerablity of a child.  The title, The Uninvited Guest begs to ask...WHO is the uninvited guest...is it the tiger in somones back yard?  or is it the humans who have encrouched in an ever shrinking habitat that has been occupied  by tigers for 1000's of years?
