This painting came from one of our many hikes in the Mt. Hood Wilderness area. This was a wonderful hike up from White River Glacier. I loved this fallen tree and wished I had taken more photos. These are Mackenzii River Wolves. The original oil painting was reproduced on paper by Stephan Fine Arts Galleries, Anchorage, Alaska. They purchased, sold, and printed my work for many years. "Diversion" won the Oregon Wildlife Federation Calender, month of February 1989. My elk painting "Down From The High Country" won the cover. Sold out.
This painting was composed from a days adventure into the back country of the Three Sisters, Broken Top is to your right. As we reached these flats, the sun just touched the tops of the mountains. Coyotes started howling near by, what an inspiration for a painting of wolves, one of my favorite subjects.
