Wyoming Sheep Country

Pastel. 16 x 20 inches. This is a sheepherder from Peru moving sheep in the Sierra Madre mountains in south central Wyoming last September. This guy told me stories about how the bears have been eating the sheep as well as a story of how a sow with two cubs charged at him. Have to admire these guys living in the backcountry with the sheep all summer.

White Wind

I completed this pastel about a year ago. 11 x14 inches. I tried to capture some movement and portray the wind and blowing snow. This is a hay meadow about 20 miles west of Cheyenne, Wy. When I took the reference photo for this painting, the wind was blowing over 40 miles per hour with snowdrifts covering the road.
