A trip to the National Gallery and a few minutes of gazing at the St. Gaudens portrait reliefs should have rendered pause to messing with Bas Relief; but there is no fool like an old fool. And besides why should a painter be the only ones trying to reduce three dimensions to two? Bison are the perfect subject, great form, boney points, varied surface, iconic silhouette, so this should be easy. Well, not so much!
