"Shy Elk Calf" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson


"Shy Elk Calf" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson
11" x 14"
$365 framed
Available for purchase from Freshwater Studio & Gallery, Dillon, MT

I still had wet paint leftover from some recent paintings, so I decided to keep rolling with the elk theme and produced this little guy. I never realized how knobby an elk calf's knees were until I painted them...




April had covered the hills
With flickering yellows and reds,
The sparkle and coolness of snow
Was blown from the mountain beds.
-Amy Lowell, "Azure and Gold"
