About the painting:
 

"Delayed here for the purpose of drying the articles which were wet and the cloathes to load the perogue which we had intended to send back, finding the water too shoal deturmind to take on the perogue also to make some observations for longitude &c. the two men G. [Gass] & R.F. {Reubin Field] joined us and informed 'that the river as far as they were up had much the appearance of the river about the mouth...'" - William Clark.

"...7 a.m. on the lard. Shore 1 1/4 miles above the mouth of a small creek which we named Corvus, in consequence of having kiled a beatiful bird of that genus near it..." - Meriwether Lewis

Lewis and Clark identified 178 plants new to science, as well as 122 new animal species...including the black-billed magpie. Despite all the hardships during the journey, they drew over 140 maps that remain a marvel of accuracy today.

 

 


About the artist:

“A personal love of history began at an early age, almost as early as my love of art. So it was quite natural to find a direction for my work.” Jerry Bingham is a relatively new name to the world of Western Fine Art, though he has been an Award-Winning illustrator for several decades. “The Art comes first in importance, but also I see myself as a storyteller. I need to have a reason for approaching each canvas, and as I work out my preliminary sketches, deciding line, color, composition, and all the things I hope will make a good painting, I also ask myself, what story am I trying to tell and how best to convey that story, like text and subtext. How much should be stated outright and how best to use that composition to reflect the emotion I am trying to pass along to the audience.”

A short stint at American Academy of Art in Chicago. Valuable workshops with some of his favorite artists like Robert Abbott, Neil Boyle, and Harley Brown. And in between, nearly forty years experience as an award winning illustrator and art director for Walt Disney Imagineering.
