I'm happy with this one. I call it precarious not only for the obvious reason but because the glaciers here will likely be gone in just a few years. The marmot's fate is less certain. They have adapted to thrive in this environment and hopefully they will be able to adapt again as the climate changes. Just another good reason to do what we can to slow the speed of climate change and give the plants and animals a chance to accommodate.

This is my most ambitious Glacier Park painting so far. I'm still not even close to running out of images to paint, but the show will be up in a week and I'll be playing somewhere else soon. I'm not sure if "bear valley" is an official name for this area around Granite Park Chalet but if it's not, it could be. This bruin has noticed the ptarmigan in the foreground, did you? (If you click on the painting you get a slightly larger view.) ;-)

This is a bittersweet panorama of Glacier Park in this age of global warming. Looking east from the continental divide, Grinnell glacier will soon be a thing of the past. I included the clouds not only to improve the composition but also to symbolize the cycle of water and renewal that will continue here in spite of how badly we mess things up. This one is for those of you who can't join me up here where hope fills up the clouds and pours down the mountainside. I hope you enjoy it.

Here's an older "horsey" one just because I spent all day doing my taxes. (yes, the queen of procrastination lives right here) This image will be in the Two Vaults gallery show opening Thursday night in Tacoma, WA. Check out my earlier posts for more info. on the show.
