Bull Moose, 24" x 30" Oil on Canvas
The fifth of Ryan’s paintings to be featured on the cover of Outdoor Life Magazine, "Yukon Gold" was painted for the Adventure Issue. A giant bull moose crosses the shallow end of a lake, his massive palms catching light from the sky overhead. Just as the bull makes his way across the open water, a trio of adventure-seeking moose hunters round a distant bend in the shoreline. Their guide steadies the boat with one oar in the water and holds the other over his head, hoping to decoy the bull and get him to stop long enough for a shot. The scene illustrates a feature story inside written by Andrew McKean about his own adventures chasing these iconic big game animals in their remote habitat. This painting is a true symbol of wilderness adventure and the exhilarating moment of truth. Watch the time lapse of this piece in progress in Ryan's studio below.
