Wind

 

This painting is the result of a 14-day residency in the Bob Marshall/ Great Bear Wilderness: The wind in the Great Bear Wilderness along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River was from upstream of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River each morning; in the evening it changed and came from downstream. You could hear the wind pushing through the conifers (pine, hemlock, spruce, fir, and cedar), but you could “see” the wind in the hardwoods (aspen and cottonwoods). This composite painting incorporates a single Cottonwood on a ledge near Granite Cabin, the conifers on hillsides all along the river valley, and hardwoods that dotted the riverbanks.
