Title: Storm Revelation

Dancing Great Bue Heron

Many winters ago my husband Harry and I were skiing in Yellowstone National Park during a blizzard. Yup! We were crazy, but we pushed on in those frigid, windy conditions. It was so stormy we couldn't see anything but blowing snow. We skied a loop up to a pass, and as we decended from the pass the storm began lifting. We had no idea what lay beyond the clouds until this moment that inspired this painting appeared before us, and what a magnificient moment it was.

This painting and scene serve as a perfect metaphor for those ahah moments when we see revelation and beauty as the storms in our minds clear.

This won Viewer's Choice Award in the Laumeister Fine Art Competition sponsored by the Bennington Center for the Arts which was juried by Huihan Liu, master signature member of the Oil Painters of America.
