MOUNT MORAN EVENING
18"X24" Oil Painting
I have been trying to decide just when this painting has been brought to completion. I have spent the last 4 or 5 days thinking it was only to go back and do a little more work on it. I think this should do it though.
Many times Elk can be found just off the hiway that runs the valley of Jackson Hole and it is a pleasure to watch Elk on the Antelope Flats area. Here a Bull courts his harem that he has gathered with much work and perseverance as evening approaches after a rain shower that has mists coming off the canyons that skirt Mount Moran. [Mount Moran was named after Thomas Moran the artist that accompanied one of the earliest scientific explorations to this area and Yellowstone and from this trip began the idea of National Parks that we so cherish in our country and world today.

I just love the colors in this image, the warms against the cool. As always, enjoying your descriptions. Thanks for sharing.

Gary, that's what you call majestic... i love how you have captured the distance and size of those mountains and the frost!

I love the color, depth and feeling of distance you've achieved in this piece.

Thanks Holly. I redid the Bull elk 3 different times trying to get him to read properly. Think I finally did it.

The backdrop is just amazing Gary, it really takes you there.

So majestic picture, Gary! I wish I can see it someday with my own eyes... Too beautiful.

I recently posted about the same thing - deciding when a piece is finished. Sometimes they declare themselves done and you know that if you keep working, it will just be a disaster. Other times, I could work and work and never finish them, I think. I love this piece, and the shadows in your foreground are wonderful.

thanks Tatiana and Deb.

Gary, Thanks for your comment on my blog, I love your colors and subjects. 18 day show is just right at my limit, I was starting to get a little snapping. I was glad to be home after tear down. Artists have so much fun, don't we?

This is lovely Gary and with the posts previous to this one, it appears you're "back in the painting saddle" again! I'm glad you're feeling better because your painting always make me feel better.

Gary, this piece is wonderful. I admire how you achieved a feeling of depth and clarity. Also, you previous painting is really interesting. The light is captivating on the trees and the deer. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Do let me now what you think of acrylic as an underpainting for your oils.

Gary Keimig said...

Yes Sheila. Back in the saddle again. Am spending a lot of time painting. Pretty hard to get upstairs to my studio so my wife has me set up in the corner of the living room. If nothing else I can look out the window at life passing me by. Have been working on a duck and goose paintings and there are a ton of them in my yard along with a nice Buck Mule Deer that occassionaly comes by with his accompanyment of Does. Helps make the day go by pretty fast. Go to Casper[400 miles round trip]next tuesday to get wires and rods pulled out of heel and can then start rehab on it.
I will let you know Mary. I am still experimenting with using Acrylic in that manner. Guess because I think it will save some time with underpainting.
