The Coulees of Jenner (24 by 30" oil on canvas) In Private Collection
Near the hamlet of Jenner Alberta is the Red Deer River, which has a spectacular coulee system where it runs through the eastern portion of Alberta. I was inspired to create this painting after walking through some of these coulees near Jenner, AB, all the different shapes I found very interesting. I see a lot of Mule deer in this area and decided to add this lone adult buck walking into the depths of the coulees. I felt that by cutting off the skyline in this painting makes it seem even more remote and wilder than what it is.
