This painting was inspired by the background rather than the subject. While traveling in my pickup one late November afternoon, with the sun low on the horizon, I was struck by the warm highlights raking the surface of the snow covered stubble field and the cool contrasts created in the shadows. Wow, wouldn't it be nice to see a huge whitetail buck in that scene, thus "North Country Monarch" was born.
