This painting had a mind of its own. The reference was a previously lost image from Bella
Coola. If you could see the reference you would wonder how I came up with this painting. What can I say other than the photo was the starting off point and then something else took over. It could be my 10 years of living on the prairies with the big prairie sky and the simplicity of the landscape that made the beauty. Whatever it was, I rather like the results. I hope you do too.
