This piece came out of a painting trip that I took to Rifle River State Recreation Area at the end of December 2020. During the times when I am in need of a greater perspective, I often seek out the sanctuary of nature and open myself up to its eternal lessons. I took the painting trip to Rifle River in order to momentarily step outside of what felt like a yearlong relentless barrage of human turmoil and to carve out a slow space to reflect back on the year, consider my trajectory, and assess what is and is not within my reach to affect. The area around the cabin where I was staying was nearly silent except for the caw and rattle of American Crows. I've always associated their vocalizations with being, "up north."
