This is a painting of the most magical moment of my stay as an artist-in-residence at Caribou Ranch near Nederland, Colorado. The mother moose and her calf were watching me paint, and I didn't even see them for I don't know how long! You can imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered them. So far, I've painted this scene twice as the moment made such an impression on me. Each artist that stays at the ranch is to donate a piece of their art to Boulder County, and this is the one that I chose to give. I am flattered that my moose painting will be enjoyed by many in a public location, but it was also bittersweet to see this one go today. Favorite paintings are like little windows into one's life.
