There are some places on this planet where it seems god wanted to show off. The Grand Tetons is one of them. Most mountain ranges build their way up to a summit with several smaller peaks allowing the observer at the bottom a modest angle to view from. The Grand Tetons burst from the earth with an explosion of tree, rock and ice, leaving one with their chin up and their jaw down.
The title is Latin which translates “When God Dreams”. The composition that you see here does not exist the mountains and swamp are real I just moved them together and added the moose.
My wife and I went to Jackson, Wyoming for the opening of the Arts in the Parks exhibition in September 2005. This was our first trip to the area. We were both overwhelmed by the rugged natural beauty of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks.
This painting made the 2nd 100 of the Arts for the Parks exhibition and will be on display in Jackson WY in September 2006.
