"Reveille" 5x7 oil
Working away in the studio, I relish the moments when my mind drifts back to adventures in the field. This piece transported me back to mornings in South Dakota. 
Warming water for coffee on the tailgate of the truck, the haunting screams of bull elk carry accompany the rising sun. And I smile. For at that very moment, all seems right with the world. Like the soothing warmth of that first sip of coffee, I'm comforted by the sounds of elk on a nearby ridge. The sun has not yet crested the mountain to thaw the frost on my tent, so I readily anticipate a large mug of hot java and look forward to the day ahead. The possibilities seem as limitless as the landscape. It's going to be a good day.
