In an effort to help raise more funds to Save Bonanza Flats, I am auctioning off a new original painting, entitled "Under Their Protection." In collaboration with Gallery MAR, my local gallery here in Park City, we are donating the entire proceeds of the auction to help Save Bonanza Flats. This is 1,350 acres of critical alpine wilderness that we have an opportunity to save forever. If we can raise $13 million as a community, we can help the city of Park City buy this land and protect it.

Description of the Painting: "Under Their Protection" is a new, original encaustic painting by Park City-based artist, Bridgette Meinhold. The 25x40 inch painting features the dramatic features of the Bonanza Flats property and gives the sense of what it's like to enjoy the mountains during the winter. Meinhold's encaustic painting features beeswax mixed with damar resin in alternating layers with milk paint to create an atmospheric, 3D effect in a 2D space. The name of the painting, refers to the three peaks in the background, which serve as guardians for those in the valley. Likewise it references our act as stewards of the land to protect the mountains in return.
