"Canyon Echoes" 24 x 48 Oil (Available at the Coeur D' Alene Art Auction,  July 28th)

A mature bull elk during the fall rut is an awesome creature to behold - his bugle is a guttural screaming crescendo, letting all rivals know of his presence.  Whether this bugle is meant for the female cow elk as a “here I am baby, or a call to battle warning” is anyone’s guess.  All I know is that I love to hear it! His scream will carry for miles, echoing from the mountaintop and down through the canyons and timbers.  It send’s chills down my spine, and is incredible to hear.

"Rams at Heavens Gate" 30 x 30 Oil

In 2001, a week after the horrific September 11th attacks on our country, I found myself at 9 thousand feet, traversing Wilcox Pass near Jasper National Park in Alberta Canada.  My heart was full, both of happiness and sorrow - grateful to be alive, mournful for those who lost their precious lives.  As I sat, thankful for all of God’s gifts in my life, a band of 6 bighorn sheep fed within feet of me then bedded down. This incredible scene that lay before me spoke to my soul - the title of the forthcoming painting was like a sweet still voice.
