"West Wind"

During a recent summer Ardythe and I attended a Range Management course in Leader, Saskatchewan. We are not ranchers, but our interest in prairies leads us to many interesting activities.

The towering clouds, distant views, and the long horizontal format inspired me to produce two paintings. A hot, buffeting and relentless wind is an essential part of this painting. Our son Glen, who lives in Saskatchewan, remarked,

"This is the Saskatchewan that I know, but I wish you had painted it more kindly."
