This is the first in a new series of paintings in a square format that I'm calling, Squaring the West. Yellowstone Canyon is one of my go-to places when I need uplift and inspiration. It never fails to instill me with a sense of profound ecstasy. There is a paved trail from the canyon's north rim to the brink of the falls - the vantage point for this painting. I have also climbed down the steep slope through thick fallen timber almost to the brink on the south side, maybe not such a smart thing to do but good for a jolt of adrenaline!
This piece has been trimmed to a vertical 20 x 16.

Ready for Sleep

Pastel on Hardboard

Sheep Mountain near Jackson Hole, Wyoming is commonly referred to as the Sleeping Indian, named for the unusual shape of the peak which is reminiscent of an Indian chief lying on his back with full war bonnet regalia. perhaps it's a fanciful interpretation but not one without some verisimilitude. This pastel landscape painting attempts to capture the light effect at sunset upon the recumbent chief, viewed across the sagebrush flats lining the Gros Ventre River.

Early May

Pastel on Hardboard

Juried Members' Show, Northwest Pastel Society
This wintry perspective on western ranch country evolved from my desire to crystallize several different notions into one canvas. It could be in any of the western states but just so happens to have been inspired mostly by scenes from Idaho near the little village of Victor, not far from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The settling of weather into the distant valley was something I had experienced in that area one May when I was there for a painting and photo outing with a friend. Atmospherics are one of my favorite subjects. The placement of the red barn is for best composition to lead the eye into the scene.
