An excellent example of a commission watercolor by Gail is "Craig's Elk"
The story behind “Craig’s Elk”.
Craig commissioned me to do a watercolor painting for him, putting together 2 photos that he took in his back yard. The First photograph was of 4 male elk running together in the Summer time. The second photo was of the aspen trees in his yard in their Colorado Fall time beauty. “What colors should I use for the background & foreground?” I asked. “Use ANY colors that you would like” he said. “You’re the expert artist!” WOW! Any colors I wanted! “Okay! I’ll really use my artistic license to create this one”, I thought. As I painted, I allowed the colors to just form, and blend as they wanted to. The painting all came together wonderfully. Craig really was SO filled with JOY & gratitude and happiness when he saw the finished painting and he loved the fact that I named it "Craig's Elk" A true co-creation between Craig, me, and Spirit!! Let this be a tribute to Craig and his LOVE of nature, creativity & his vision. Note: young male elk really only run together in the Summer.
