Arizona artist Robert Peters spent several years painting and raising horses in Colorado. But, it was another range that inspired this painting. A herd of bison graze peacefully on the wildflower dotted plains that lead to the Tetons in the distance. This land was a mecca for the massive animals who are "knee deep" in luxurious grass and colorful spring wildflowers - all well before man made his Western thrust.
“I often seek out the story in a landscape,” says Peters. He notes that “the repetition of shape in ridges” and “jagged rocks in juxtaposition with soft snow” are just a couple aspects that interest him in mentally forming a composition that will draw and move the viewer’s eye to take in all of nature captured on his canvas. The artist also notes that “a judicious use of detail” makes up the light and delicate aspects of his works. The excellent ability to orchestrate color and values gives Peters’ art depth and emotion. “That’s where their (my paintings) atmosphere comes from,” adds the artist. “In the studio, I’m composing, rearranging, and reliving.”
