Just One More Pan
Painting - Oil
I just finished another in my series "Seeking Color" and I'm excited how it turned out. When I started my initial plans for the painting I envisioned an white haired prospector that even though his gold bag is full is stopping one more time along the mountain stream to try to find "Just One More Pan". His bedroll, supplies and all important gold pouch are stacked near a fallen tree. Next to him he has his rifle ready to grab if necessary. He is intently working his pan and is excited to see a couple of gleaming specks have already washed up onto the pan.
This series is inspired by my love for the state of Nevada-One of the largest gold producing areas in the world. Nevada mines 79% of all gold found in the United States and this rich history spans over 150 years. The Nevada miner is a sturdy and adventurous lot. To the likely protest of his family in the east, he traded in his plow for a pic, shovel and a couple of gold pans to seek a dream only the streams of the Sierra Nevada's or the dry dust that covers the desert floor could satisfy. Few actually saw that dream come to fruition, many died in pursuit of the dream and Nevada is one of handful of states that owe them much.
