Ptarmingan Mountain in the Fall

 Many years ago I took this large 30 x 40 canvas up toward Yellowstone on the North Fork of the Shoshone River and painted most of this scene on location.  It was purchased by  Jim Nielsen, President of Husky Oil  (centered in Cody, Wyoming where we lived for many years). The painting became part of the Husky Oil collection and then when  Marathon Oil Company  purchased Husky Oil the painting became part of the Marathon Collection.    I hadn't seen it for many years but in 2012 it was displayed in the  Buffalo Bill Museum  and it was like seeing an old friend.
