This painting is of Penelope and Louis Hiking. It’s the 8th painting of them in a series I am doing. I used to small pine planks glued together for the canvas.

The Magnificent Elk
With this painting my mind harkened back to when we went to Colorado on vacation a little over a year ago. The scenery is a hodgepodge of photos we took. Part of that trip we stayed in Estes Park. This is a stunning area of the Rocky Mountain National Park, and it’s loaded with Elk. I guess I wanted to make a tribute to the magnificent Elk standing majestically in the cool crisp Rocky Mountain air. It is a beautiful animal, and I don’t know what the painting commands most? The attention of the Elk or the scenery? I made this painting on three pine board planks.
Grandson meets Elk in Estes Park
I know my blog is all about my paintings, but I couldn’t resist sharing a pic of my grandson’s shock and awe when we encountered a stray bull Elk in Estes Park. We were in the city. Shops were right across the street. Capturing this moment at just the right time says it all! 🙂 #FOAPNATION , http://www.foap.com , woodartist
