“The ocelot is perhaps the most elegant of the small cats. In fact, a large ocelot is not all that small
since they retail a length of over 3 feet. Some would say that they are the most elegant of all cats
because of the long neck, slender body and softly shaded, rectangular markings. The face is also
particularly appealing with the large, alert eyes, short muzzle and pink nose.
Ocelots are found in a variety of habitats from Texas through Central America to northern South
America. They can swim and, of course, are excellent tree climbers.Where they are not threatened,
they are as active by day as by night. I have shown this ocelot relaxed and watchful. The ocelot in
this print is relaxed and watchful. The painting is in the soft mood of a shaded tropical siesta.”
