This past August my wife Suzanne and I travelled over 10,000 kilometers out west to Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota. This was the first time that Sue saw all the wonderful places I have been over the years which made this trip very special for me. She turned out to be a good luck charm as we saw many things such as my first wolf in Yellowstone, a Bison stampede, bighorn sheep and Yellowstone on fire! Here is a sampling of our awesome trip!
Well this is my second trip to Yellowstone this year, but it was short lived. Only two days in the park and I was asked to leave by rangers because of the US Government shut down. Despite the short two day stay I got really great reference shots. The elk shoots I got this time around are dynamite and I can not wait to start putting together paintings.
Had a great time down in Yellowstone and Glacier before I did my workshop in Edmonton. I was a little early this year and did not have access to a lot of both parks (still snow blocking roads), but got some great shots anyway. Here is a little montage of the trip, hope to be painting from the reference real soon!
