Eight/tenths of an inch of rain at the Boulder Lake Ranch (where I live) in the night. The morning brought clouds; then gradual clearing and wind. I arrived at the Flying Fish Hook Ranch about 10:15. Quiet, quiet, quiet–nothing but QUIET except for the rustle of a stiff breeze through the sage and intermittent birdsong–bluebirds, black birds, and Redwing blackbirds. White “puffies” and lemony sunshine.

I was able to tuck into the lee side of the “hunter’s cabin” out of the wind and paint for a couple of hours. Got a good start on an 8 x 10 oil painting.
There is a painting in every direction one turns out here and I loving the variety of greens punctuated by the greyish buff boulders decorated with orange lichen. (Some almost lavender in the distance.)

View22: Field Study Works Now Available Online!

In 2017, we invited 21 local artists to create place-inspired art on 18 Jackson Hole Land Trust conservation properties in Teton, Fremont, and Sublette counties. The momentum for the project built over the summer as artists created their works and interacted with the community at artist demonstrations at the R Lazy S, and the Teton Food Tour.

View22: Field Study will culminate this Sunday, August 13th, 2017 with an exhibit and sale at the Jackson Hole Land Trust’s 37th Annual Picnic at the Hardeman North Meadow in Wilson.

The 80 finished works are now available for viewing and purchase through our downloadable e-catalog! The catalog will be updated periodically to reflect sales.

For inquiries regarding art sales please contact Roxanne Pierson at [email protected] or 307-733-4707.
