The Origin of The Northern Lights: White Buffalo Calf.
(48" X 68")




May 20, 2017
Today I'm working on the calf. 
I want the calf to look surreal, vision-like.
I'm also putting a swarm of blackflies around the North wind's head. 
I've spent too many summers in the northern woods to leave those darlings out.
Don't know if you can see them in the photo though...they're tiny ;-)))  


The 3 text sections are:
Verses from Mon Pays, by Gilles Vigneault 
(the best & most accurate description of the Canada I know & love), 
references to the Aurora Borealis from 
Shakespeare, Milton, Dryden & Homer, 
and an excerpt from Dr John Rae's letter 
describing his search for the bodies of Franklin's crew.
