This is a painting of an elk that was drinking water in the river located by the West Entrance in Yellowstone National Park. I took the photo of this elk in July, 2015. I was very excited to photograph this majestic animal in the wild, especially in the river in the early morning hours, and then to make it come to life in a painting was just a dream come true. The size is 18" x 24". Done in acrylic on canvas. Completed 12/15.
