[Wilderness] is good for us when we are young, because of the incomparable sanity it can bring briefly, as vacation and rest, into our insane lives. It is important to us when we are old simply because it is there—important, that is, simply as an idea.

— From “Wilderness Letter,” Wallace Stegner, 1960

Cover Picture

In the last post I showed a sketch I did on site (in gale force winds) overlaid onto an image I took of what I was sketching ( a herd of bison on the Little Missouri River in Theodore Roosevelt National Park). I was contacted by the folks that created the above publication. They asked if they could use it for an article on TRNP. They decided to use it on the cover instead of the inside.

BSC Alumni Art Exhibit

I will be participating in an Alumni Art Exhibition at Bismarck State College. The exhibition will run September 23 through October 25, 2013 in the Gannon Gallery which is located within the BSC Library.

A reception will be held Wednesday, October 16 from 4-6 p.m. All exhibitors are encouraged to participate. Sorry no spirits at this reception, but, strong coffee and plenty of baked goods for the viewer and why not, viewing art with a critical eye is hungry work.

As a proud Alumnus of BSC I was honored to take part in this biennial event. Below are my two entries. I hope to see you on October 16th.
