"Early in my career I had the privilege of working on one of Perry Wilson's museum dioramas depicting the display of sage-grouse. Since then, I'd always wanted to see this magnificent spectacle in the wild. Last year, on a painting trip to Wyoming, my wish came true. I located a lek in the foothills of the Grand Tetons. Arriving at 5 a.m., I set up my scope and sketched for about four hours, as dawn began to illuminate the birds."
