I was inspired by a painting, the "Midnight - Black Wolf" by Robert Bateman (Canadian painter). Bateman writes: "In the Midnight Black Wolf painting I wanted to show the ominous presence of a mature, lone wolf, I wanted to create a mood of seriousness and respect - not threat. From the artistic point of view, I was intrigued by the challenge of portraying a black animal on an almost black background. It is something like playing a whole piano composition in half an octave of the bass section." - Robert Bateman
