Crossing Below the Falls by Howard Terpning
The Blackfoot still live at the edge of one of nature’s most spectacular regions, the eternal and primitive wilderness that is now known as Glacier National Park. Two Blackfoot warriors from a time long past are portrayed against but one of the dramatic landscapes that abound in this special place of scenic splendor in the mountains of Montana.
The inspiration for this setting, Running Eagle Falls is located in East Glacier, Montana. Two Blackfoot men navigate a shallow crossing as the late sun spreads across the mid-ground in this painting. Bits of light hit the trees leaning from the left and right edges and a critical touch of sun hits the top of the falls.
