The smell of sage is on the wind. The riders smell it as they move beneath waves of hills. landscape. The hills in the middle distance, like bent knees under blankets, push the picture in two directions, up and down. Only a few puffs of cloud mar a bluish, purplish sky while puffs of brush jut from a sandy pink desert floor. ThereÕs a juicy dimensonality to the paint on the canvasÑthe foreground pops out and the plain recedes to the hills. Subject reflects style. The hunt is quiet now, but soon it will be wild when the riders flush a plump rabbit.
