" BALE JUMPER - Des McCaffrey Wildlife Art


Several years ago I created a piece titled “A Better Look” which portrayed a coyote on a round bale that got some pretty good feedback at one of my exhibits.  I felt the need to revisit that composition ever since but with a red fox as the main actor instead.  The fox's tawny coloured fur was perfect to contrast against the cool shadows in the background. Having witnessed this scene a few times on our own round bales I had a pretty easy time visualizing this composition.

1. Paper Giclee Print

This option is a signed and numbered print which like all of Des’s prints are produced in his studio under his strict supervision on a wide format Epson SureColor Printer.  Using only the finest Italian made 100% cotton rag paper with a smooth finish, this option is hand signed and numbered by Des and limited to an edition size of only 95 prints.  This print is shipped rolled with a certificate of authenticity and is guaranteed to arrive in mint condition.  Custom framing is required on this print which allows you to pick exactly the frame and matt combination of your choice to match your own specific decor. 

2. Canvas Giclee Print

The canvas version of this painting is our top of the line option and is printed with the same exacting standards as its paper counterparts but on an American made artists canvas.  This version also requires custom framing of your choosing but doesn’t require the use of glass and matts usually resulting in an overall lower framing cost.  The canvas is also shipped rolled and arrives to you signed and numbered with two coats of an archival varnish and a certificate of authenticity.  Your canvas once stretched and framed will have the closest resemblance to the original painting of all three options.  Des’s canvas editions are limited to only 50 copies for an even higher collectable value.
