Jackson Hole Barn

16 X 20 Oil on Canvas $125
Includes shipping and insurance
About 10 miles north of Jackson, Wyoming on the way to Yellowstone, there's a turn-off of Hwy 191 called Antelope Flats Road. This is in the Teton National Park and a huge herd of wild bison freely roam this area. To the West is the Snake River and a magnificent view of the Grand Teton, and to the East are open plains, prairies, lush meadows and, if you are lucky, the wild bison and antelope that live there. There also are a number of structures that are famous for being phtographed and this barn is one of them. This area of Wyoming is wonderful for photographers (Ansel Adams made the Tetons famous from here) and I always enjoy looking through my photos, reliving our trips.
This is part of my normal learning procedure before I paint a large painting - a color study to establish a palette. This one has a lot of paint and texture and has painted sides ready to hang.

The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby.
