Rocky Mountain Meadow by Nancy Glazier ~ Rocky Mountain Meadow may well be Glazier’s finest elk painting to date. For years, Nancy has struggled with how to paint frost on an elk’s coat. It has been one of the few frustrations she faces with elk paintings. She was terribly excited when she stepped back from this piece to find that she had finally succeeded in creating frost on their coats in shaded spots and melted frost on the areas that are in the sunlight. In addition, she included nine elk in the painting – each one different from the rest, each with its own, unique personality!
Surrounded by mountain beauty and the animals the artist loves to paint, Glazier says, “I feel a kinship with the animal that grows as the painting progresses. There is a powerful chemistry at work. People ask me, ‘Which is your favorite animal to paint?’ I can tell you it is the very animal I am painting at the time. For Glazier, it is “…a warm, living, breathing process that brings me back again and again to the easel. It is my ultimate reward.”
The artist’s style evolved over time. After seeing a dramatic photograph of a grizzly, she was awakened to a desire to paint animals “close up and hair-by-hair.” The artist has taken hands-on anatomy classes that enable her to paint an amazingly accurate portrait of an animal from its bone structure to muscles to hair, bringing it life on her canvas.
Glazier and her husband reside in an idyllic setting in Nevada where a spacious studio allows her to create her extraordinary paintings and continue her journey of discovery to capture “the whole picture.
