This painting was inspired by a visit to Yellowstone National Park. On this particular morning the mist was so thick I could barely see a 100 yards. In the mist I could hear the crackle of a ravens call, but could not see him. Then, just like a movie, the raven soared in and landed on a rock not 10 feet from me. He was obviously looking for a generous hand out from me and did not seem to fear me at all. I am not sure if it is good thing that the animals of park areas have become accustomed to man, it does make for some great experiences, but makes you wonder if we spend to much time infringing on their homes.
