"Crossing the Yellowstone" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson
acrylic on canvas
24" x 36" x 1.5"
* This painting was sadly destroyed by UPS (impaled by a forklift, presumably) while it was in transit to a gallery.
I tried loosening up a bit more for this painting...I wanted to focus on the colors and give a more surreal impression to the landscape.
Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty—the unhidden heart—
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto's daughter
-Edgar Allen Poe, from "To the River"
