Swan Valley Study #3 - NFS

"Swan Valley Study #3", 8" x 10", Oil on Panel
This was painted just as the sun was going down, so it was a fast painting and fast sometimes works best for me--no time for second thoughts! Right after this, as we were putting away our gear, we saw across the pond a moose and two calves. We'd seen a buck moose in the same area in the morning. As I was driving back to Idaho Falls a couple of days later, I saw a big buck crossing the river.

  1. It's hard to choose between these Swan Valley studies, in terms of which one is my favorite, they are all so good. I think you are exceptionally good at making a wonderful composition no matter what is in front of you, and then following through with the mood. Just lovely.
