The Wyoming studio is located on the Popo Agie River which flows into the
Wind River. There is abundant wildlife year 'round on the property, and I can
be "in the field" while in the studio. The river flows under an icepack most of
the winter, but is always open and the wildlife rely on it.
As I looked out the window of the studio this morning, my subject was before me. I've sculpted pheasants many times, but they were so beautiful in snow today that I simply had to paint them. Shown on the right, is the view from the studio deck.
