In far southern Alberta just north of the Montana line, the small, quiet, tea stained Milk River flows calmly through some of the most breath taking tracts of native Grassland that still exist in Canada. In this painting along the bank of this small river stands a Coyote perhaps looking for a place to cross, or peacefully soaking up the view.
As ones eye explores this painting up near the top right portion something mysterious is protruding from the cliff side. A bone bed, remnants of Bison that were likely killed during a Bison hunt from this lands Indigenous people hundreds of years ago. This place is now an archaeology site known as the Twin River Site.
It's interesting to me how throughout the landscape of the Plains there are bits and pieces of another time scattered throughout from days gone by. I often wonder how the people who lived here in the past viewed this land, how they perceived nature, what thoughts went through their minds when out on the land...
I hope you all enjoy this painting depicting a glimpse at the passage of time, in Twin River Time.
