In continuing my Yellowstone series, I am currently working on 5 different paintings. Several are now nearing completion and I think I am pretty well finished with this Oil Painting, SNAKE RIVER GRIZZLY. It is 12"x24". I actually used the area just outside the south gate to Yellowstone as my background. This is along the Sanke River bottoms and I have used the north end of the Teton Mountains as a background. These are the most fabulous meadows and river bottom habitats and make for the greatest source of inspiration and painting opportunities. We spend quite a bit of time in various seasons here and this is not the first time nor will it be the last time I will use this area in paintings.
