The American Bison is a true original and its image takes us back to a seldom remembered past when they roamed freely over the land prior to their decimation almost to extinction at the hands of man. I tried to capture the simple beauty, strength and majesty of this truly magnificent animal. This was previously painted a few years ago but the 4th of July got me to thinking about our great country so thought I would post it here. Enjoy! ~M
Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations. ~Paul Cezzane

Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength ; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. ~Isaiah 40:31

Now I am off to ride!
A happy weekend to all my friends!
forged in fires ~ beyond the stars
comes the promise ~ seeking lost hearts
shattering the dark ~ forever hope remains
sparks of eternity ~ invade the present
time between time ~ a kingdom advances
within silent moments ~ sacrificial love wins

The above was created for Free Write Friday using what is called stream of consciousness, no editing, no proofing just creating (usually writing, hence the Free Write Friday, but this week I went a little more visual with micro-poetry because that is what came to mind) from the following Word Bank prompt:
Opal, Vague, Whirl, Dream, Sheer, Conjure, Bare, Allure !
