Harney Range – Autumn Electric
acrylic on canvas
Lingering in the Black Hills high-country, summer seeps twinkling from phantasmagoric spires in the Harney Range; great stone masses, steeped in gentle alpine warmth, stand radiant and alive. Time solidified, roosting sleepily, balances patently, at ease until a first dark and icy storm falls out of the north, sweeping over the Hills. The North Wind with a wintry bite rides shrieking in slot canyons, howling through ponderosa, and moaning against impassive granite. Lifting behind swirling mists in the wake of the tempest, a low glowing sunrise infuses an enchanted land with warm golden light. Autumn is electric in the Harney Range.
