Description


The title of my new piece is “Over The Great Divide.” For those who don’t know, the Continental or the “Great Divide” in the Americas is the line that divides the flow of water between the Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean. Rain or snow that drains on the east side of the Continental Divide flows toward the Atlantic Ocean while precipitation on the west side drains and flows toward the Pacific Ocean. The continental divide runs from northwestern Canada along the crest of the Rocky Mountains to New Mexico. Then, it follows the crest of Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental. In South America, the Continental Divide lies along the Andes. The “Great Divide” runs from the north though the center of Yellowstone National Park and right atop these massive mountains that I have behind Sheldon and his horse. The “Tetons” were named by the early French fur traders that thought when they first saw them that they reminded them of womens’ breasts! Thus the name, “Grand Tetons!” The Tetons rise 13,770 feet above sea level from the valley floor which is already 6,530 feet above sea level. The piece is traditional oils on “museum-grade” Masonite and the size is 18” x 24”. Original is for Sale- $9000
