Bus Stop Moose

Bus Stop Moose- 9" x 12"; acrylic/mixed media

Wild animals wandering around town can cause quite a stir. I get excited when we get deer or the occasional raccoon in our yard. For some towns like Park City, Utah it seems to be a constant problem and the animals get more and more brazen. That was the thought I had when I came up with this painting for Park City Magazine. It was for an article on how the city deals with these sometimes not so welcome visitors. It was always fun to work with my friends Don Weller and his wife Cha Cha on the magazine (they have since moved on to other pursuits). They always gave me enormous latitude in create an image, which was refreshing.
