"Crossing the Yellowstone" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson

Crossing the Yellowstone
acrylic on canvas
24" x 36" x 1.5"
RIP - This painting was destroyed by its shipping carrier, UPS, en route to a gallery.

I tried loosening up a bit more for this painting...I wanted to focus on the colors and give a more surreal impression to the landscape.

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow 
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow 
Of beauty—the unhidden heart—
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto's daughter
-Edgar Allen Poe, from "To the River"

Kristin Jurist Haakenson
