Pronghorn Antelope

How to buy
“Enter Stage Right” is my first painting of Pronghorns based on my first experience observing them in the wild on a trip to Jackson Hole in September of 2006. I watched the small scattered herd along the Gros Ventre Road for some time, fascinated by their bold markings, unusual shapes, and elegant movements. They remind me very much of Edgar Degas’s backstage ballerina paintings, where strong but elegant women stretch, bend, and warm up for the act before going on stage. The long, subtle limbs of the antelope and their momentarily poised, then effortlessly shifting stances seemed so theatrical that I allowed the background, while certainly not incidental, to become little more than a backdrop for the spotlighting of these four-legged dancers. It is my hope that, like Degas’s work, “Enter Stage Right” evokes a sense of quiet beauty and power coupled with an element of tension and impending action.
