"Rams at Heavens Gate" 30 x 30 Oil (Available at the Prix D' West invitational, National Cowboy Museum)
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.
