It seemed fitting that this was the painting I donated to this last weekend’s fundraiser in Jackson Hole, WY. to benefit the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance and the Art Association of the same. The fundraiser was held at Altamira Gallery. I had a great time being there – there was much snow and dramatic weather, and it was good seeing friends and meeting new people.
As I understand it, there are now many wolf sitings in the area, and in fact, a black wolf was just recently seen in the driveway of the home where we stayed!
We were lucky enough to stay with a friend who has a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright style house high up on the hill NW of Jackson. This beautiful and organic home is nestled into the hillside and looks as though it belongs there. The living room boasts huge windows on three sides, overlooking the valley below for miles. On Saturday, an intense, blizzarding storm descended on the area. Sitting in that living room drinking hot coffee was almost surreal. The blizzard was blowing much snow all around us. It was a white out at times and yet we sat untouched, warm and cozy in the eye of the storm.
I was honored that “Full Moon” was purchased by someone we think a lot of! The money went to a very good cause!
