This is a painting that went through many beginnings and ends. I first completed a full meadow with tress ad golden underbrush. I called it complete and then something bothered me, so I pushed on. The idea of a morning mist enveloping the background came next and that wasn’t what I imagined, so again I moved forward. I did some small sketches and then figured it out. I pictured the moose deep in a northern autumn mountainscape with nice powerful colour and shapes. Once I began bringing in the shapes of the main mountain, everything fell into place. Very pleased.
