Original Rocky Mountain Elk Painting

"There was a bull tagged with a #10 in his ear that hung around Mammoth Hot Springs for many years.  I was able to observe him for some of his life.  During one season, it was much, much warmer than usual for late September and that seemed to keep much of the elk to the forest.  It was interesting how much more timid the elk were in the forest versus out in the open, in the small town of Mammoth Hot Springs.  So, they kept me busy trying to find the right angles with the right lighting that year and this is one of my takes on it.  Something I enjoyed here is how the shape of the antlers increases the feeling of movement in the piece."
