Cirque of the Towers/New PaintingPosted: July 8, 2014
“Cirque of the Towers” 21.5″ x 28″
For the past six years Robert and our sons have gone backpacking with friends to the Wind River Range in Wyoming. The Wind River Range is a vast expanse of wilderness. Every year they have gone to a different location and still haven’t come close to seeing it all. They have had many interesting experiences including being chased out of camp by an aggressive bear and our older son Luke coming down with a serious case of high altitude sickness. The plus side of visiting this rugged mountain range is the fishing and the spectacular scenery. After the first year Robert put his fishing pole aside (even when all he had to do to catch a fish was dangle his fly 8″ above the water, and the fish would jump up to grab it) and spent the time taking pictures. “Cirque of the Towers” is the first painting of several that Robert is working on right now. I think it turned out great!
