This painting was inspired by our trip to Wyoming this last summer. The northeastern part of Yellowstone is very mountainous, and there were bison here and there on the flat areas. I composed this scene using my small field studies (done in oil, and in the rain) and photo references. I wanted to give the feel of massive mountains and space. The incredible feeling you get when your out West.
