The Oxbow River Valley amongst the Grand Tetons (French for breasts) mountain range in northern Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park.

This was painted from a photograph. I added the Elk.
75% of this painting was done with a #0 and #1 round brush. It took a while.

I love the colors, I love how you captured the scenery as well as the wildlife. My most favorite is the mountains

I have viewed this painting a few times, but now make a comment It has a rich presence, like you were actually there and smelling the air; hearing all the sounds of nature

Thanks, Trevor. My, the enhancement of size in this new 'redesign' makes a world of difference. Now very few details are lost! Fantastic!
