I had a nice treat today when I went out location scouting in the freshly falling snow: hundreds of elk were migrating to the mountains. Fortunately, I saw them coming and was able to stop for them and to shoot some video with my little Leica. It was amazing to see such a big herd, this is a small sampling. And a photo where you can see the line of elk reaching almost a mile.
This little scene is one that I've attempted to paint several times. I like this one the best so far. I love the challenge of painting snow scenes because there is no where to hide with design and interesting shapes. 9x9", Oil on Linen. Private Collection.
