“Olaf”, known by his friends as Oly, is the manager of the Mead Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wy. The ranch sits under the stunning Teton Mountain Range. We lived under the Tetons for years, and I still make my way out there every year to paint. My friend and I stood at the edge of the ranch in awe of the scene. Olaf came along on a 4-wheeler and gave us the grand tour. His look was classic and his demeanor kind. One of my favorite portraits to paint, I was proud to have this piece accepted into the OPA’s Eastern Exhibition.
