VERSO
Signed, titled, and dated

According to the artist, “There is a fundamental duality to the landscape of the American West that I find fascinating. It is at once beautiful and enticing but also brutally indifferent to our physical well-being. I painted the study for this piece nestled behind a scrubby evergreen at the overlook to Hidden Lake in Glacier National Park on a day that epitomized this duality: low clouds carried on a stiff cold wind bringing intermittent hail, but also breaks of glorious sunshine on the glacier-covered mountains across the chasm. In spirit I could have stood three weeks or even three years soaking up the wonder of nature’s glory; my body and mind made it three hours before the desire for a warm dry car and a hot cup of coffee forced me down.”
