The Crossing, Original Oil Painting on Linen Canvas.
A bison gently wades into the river seeking richer pastures on the other side. For a short distance the wade turns into a swim and soon the shores safety is reached. Following the success of their leader the rest of the herd make their way down the river bank and start to head out across the waters. New pastures are found and the bison herd are content to graze once more. The wonderful area of Yellowstone National Park provides a fine refuge for bison who once roamed the North American plains in their millions.
Keep not standing, fixed and rooted, briskly venture, briskly roam – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832.
