It is my fourth day at Brush Creek Ranch Foundation for the Arts residency in Saratoga, WY. Along with four other artists, I share 13,000 acres of wild wintery terrain. Simultaneous with the tranquility of the the landscape, is a wild energy. The catalysts unquantifiable. Bison, longhorns, ranch dogs, antelope, and the history of 150 years tended to this space. I spent yesterday hiking, following nothing but animal footprints in the snow.
