Hey everybody! I’m always in search of reference material so I took the trip out west to sight-see, gain inspiration, and take thousands of photos! I was so blessed to experience so much overwhelming beauty in Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana! I’ve attached a painting I did of the Grand Teton Mountains in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I visited in late September and the aspens and cottonwood trees were spectacular! I saw elk, bison, moose, mule deer, antelope, a variety of waterfowl, and also a very friendly porcupine who greeted me one night outside my cabin! I did not want to come home, it was so beautiful! But I have memories and numerous painting ideas! Keep looking for them!
