Elk Bones at Bumping Lake

I just rediscovered this photo & little digital painting from our fall retreat at Bumping Lake in September.
What a sight it was to see these beautiful white elk bones scattered across the fir needle carpet of the forest floor! I was intrigued by this little sprig of plant, wiggling it's way up through a tiny hole in one of the bones.
We gathered an armful of the most interesting bones and brought them back to town with us to include in still life studies and paintings.
We will return them to the forest after we are done.
