The painting “Winter Drift” by Michael Dumas was recently selected for the Western Visions 2021 Exhibition at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming. “Winter Drift” is an original oil painting measuring 10.5″ x 7.5″ and features a Black-capped Chickadee.
Western Visions is the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s largest and longest running fundraiser and features many of today’s most sought-after artists. “Winter Drift” will be on display at Western Visions 2021 from Sep 10 – Oct 3, after which it will be on display at Picture This Gallery in Sherwood Park, Alberta.
“Winter Drift” is also spotlighted in Realism Today‘s article On Drawing Harbingers of Seasonal Change, which goes into the creative process of Michael Dumas. Regarding “Winter Drift”, Michael Dumas says, “the day is cold, but I am dressed warmly, my attention focused on the intricate patterns of golden-rod stalks and dead grass pressed down by the snow. A dark flurry against the blue shadows leaves me with an impression of wings in full spread. It is such a fragile thing, and easily lost.”
All of us at Picture This congratulate Michael Dumas on this latest honour! If you would like to view Winter Drift, contact us or visit the gallery!
