Clueless in the Rut, Framed
This painting was my first large painting. It was also my first painting that I used a huge variety of photo references all compiled together to create the vision in my head. It took FOREVER for me to complete it. But it was so worth it! My husband was really getting into elk hunting at the time so we spent as much time as we could in those beautiful ponderosa forests of northern Arizona. In this painting my hidden thing isn’t so hidden…maybe to the elk, but most viewers spot it right away. 30×40 oil on canvas.
