Spring flowers in the Tetons

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Limited Edition of 50 Exclusive high-resolution Museum Quality Fine Art Prints. They say spring storms bring flowers to the valleys of the Teton Range in Grand Teton National Park. I think it worked.

Balsamorhiza[1] is a genus of plants in the sunflower family known commonly as balsamroots.[2][3] These are perennials with fleshy taproots and caudices bearing erect stems and large, basal leaves. Atop the tall stems are showy yellow sunflower-like blooms. Balsamroots are native to western North America (United States and Canada).

Native Americans used the sticky sap of this plant as a topical antiseptic for minor wounds. The entire plant is edible and nutritious, but not necessarily enjoyable because it contains a bitter, strongly pine-scented sap. The large taproots produced by Balsamorhiza sagittata are edible and were harvested, dried, and ground into a starchy flour by Native Americans when other food plants were scarce. The plants' large taproots are reported to be very palatable and far less bitter than the above-ground parts of the plant.[4]

The plant grows on dry hillsides and dry open meadows throughout the Mountain West of North America. The plant can be easily confused with species belonging to the genus Wyethia (Mule's ears); and Wyethia and Balsamorhiza tend to have very similar appearances and flowering habits. Wyethia species are easily distinguished from Balsamorhiza due to their very sharply lanced leaves which lack the fuzzy silver gray appearance of Balsamorhiza species. Balsamorhiza sagittata is the most common and widespread species in the genus within the Mountain West of North America.[4]

Palatable to wildlife and livestock, this is a herb that decreases under grazing. Though once covering much of the arid west in spring, this common forb has become uncommon and even disappeared in some areas like the Snake River Plains. The presence of this plant can be used as an indicator of overall range health—fewer plants and flowers indicate over-utilization of pastures and/or allotments. Hillsides covered with these flowers and perennial bunchgrasses and sagebrush can quickly become wastelands of cheatgrass and tumblemustard if cattle or other stock overgraze, consuming the herb and grass energy reserves again and again until the plants individually die, while crushing their only shade.[5]

Ultra Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Print

I believe the Lumachrome® HD Acrylic Print using TruLife® acrylic is the finest image display medium available today. The Lumachrome® process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional Fujiflex chromagenic and other inkjet processes. Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome® process along with brilliant colors, superior shadow luminosity & detail and a radiant glowing response under halogen lighting.

Trulife® acrylic is an innovative, single sided, anti-reflective and abrasion resistant acrylic. It virtually eliminates reflections, blocks up to 99% of UV rays, has a hard coat that protects against scratches and cleans like glass. Your print will have a 1/8 inch thick acrylic surface with an aluminum backing and an HD 1.375" ROMA back mounted recessed floating frame allowing your artwork to appear to “float” on the wall.
