Fine art illustration of a Northern Leopard Frog (Rana pipiens.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
This is a re-do from a previous drawing which was pretty weak. This is my fourth drawing of 2009 and I must say I’m pretty satisfied with it. It’s nice to transform one of the weakest drawings in my library into one of it’s strongest. I suppose it’s not surprising that the subject is a frog from my native state – two of my great passions in represented in one animal. I used to see these frogs all over Minnesota where I grew up. My guess is that they’re not nearly as common as they used to be. The leaves were designed with a kind of ‘art noveau’ feel to them, which I think complements the frog.
