Snow Globe series newest additions

June 18, 2010 | Filed in:

These are in my homemade snow globe series which depicts the harsh realities of living in the Western landscape in contrast to our romanticized visions.  Here are three new additions:  “Stuck Truck”, “Labor begins in a Snowstorm”, and “Cow and Calf.” 
“Labor Begins in a Snowstorm” was in a group show in the summer of 2010 for former residency artists at School of Visual Arts: “Abstract Intentions” curated by Keren Moscovitch and David Gibson. Calving time in the Rockies is often in the spring and inevitably there are many spring snowstorms to contend with. This scene shows a woman rancher trying to get a pregnant cow into cover before she calves. The cow doesn’t want to go anywhere, obviously.
