Damn Moose

Oil Painting – William Plante

Hiking along a ridge, camera strap around my neck, I witnessed this view and made my way down a slope to get a better shot. Composing and focusing, an animal popped up in the view finder; a bull moose, rumbling straight towards me. Everyone knows when a moose charges – retreat. Back up the slope I went, looked around, the beast was headed the other direction.

The damn moose, prevented me from taking a photo, I painted the scene, so there.

Today is Valentine’s Day, suppose I should have written something sweet and gooey. A box of candy will fix that, if I don’t eat it first.
