Today, in the Kalahari Desert, he is a sentry while the others in his clan forage and play. If there is danger, he will bark to tell the others to hide. But, there is no danger today. Yet, he will remain on duty while the others race and wrestle in the sun.

This painting would look best in a small-to-medium space that is red, orange, green, blue, purple, beige grey, black, white, or wood.

Having Fun During COVID-19

Mike Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children’s Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
