OTHER ANIMAL PAINTINGS

WEJNA (Caribou)
Oil on canvas
40” x 50”

These Caribou were painted following an exciting trip to Alaska in 1982, when I was commissioned by ARCO ALASKA to do a large painting of Caribou for their offices. I went to Anchorage, spent a week there, and flew, with a local bush pilot, 200 miles out to a frozen lake  where we landed in the middle of a herd of caribou. He was the only pilot in town who would chance the flight, due to threatening weather conditions, and having to fly back through the mountains after dark.

Wejna, by the way, is, according to Bruce Chatwin in his book, IN PATAGONIA, a Yaghan word meaning 'to be loose or easily moved as a broken bone or the blade of a knife' - 'to be attached yet loose, as an eye or bone in its socket' - 'to swing, move or travel' - or simply 'to exist or be'. I found the Caribou to be homely, awkward looking creatures when standing still, yet beautiful and graceful and fluid when in motion.
