Bugling Elk, 20×16 oil on canvas

This Elk did not want to be bothered. Just off the side of the road I pulled over and started photographing him while he was eating. He than started bugling and stamping his foot like he might charge. Did not take me long to high tail it out of there, after snapping this picture I just had to paint.

Paint. Its all I think about. The process of capturing mood and history by starting with a white canvas is what gets me up in the morning. To look back at all the paintings done, each one telling their own story of my life and how the surroundings interacted with me there. Most of all trying to capture those moments of connection between wild animals, lighting, and myself. There is no more gratifying field than that of an artist. tonypachakart.com
