There is a majesty to be seen in this antlered elk. Alone on a snowy ridge, it gazes out into the horizon. It is as if a king were surveying his own kingdom. He wears a rack of bone like a crown to designate his dominion over all that is seen. The sun sits center on this royal headpiece as a jewel would be placed on regalia made by more lowly hands. He lords supreme and has fully embodied Spirit of the North. I have seen such wondrous animals on many of my personal trips to the varied wildlands that still exist. My hope is that the thrill of those encounters translates onto this canvas and that you too feel you have met a monarch. Please enjoy Spirit of the North, and thank you for sharing my adventures in art.
