"Summer on the Block Ranch"


At some point during the creation of a painting, I begin to consider a suitable title. As there are a number of important elements in this prairie painting, (clouds, trees, grass, wind), which is the dominant element? Which is the major player and which are the props?

The location of the scene is the Block Ranch in the Great Sandhills of Saskatchewan. If I have been successful in capturing the essence of a summer day on their prairie, then the heat, the wind, and the summer sky share equally, and no one element wins. So I simply called it "Summer on the Block Ranch".
