"16th Hole, Moonlight Basin, Big Sky" by R. Tom Gilleon

"16th Hole, Moonlight Basin, Big Sky" by R. Tom Gilleon
16th Hole, The Reserve at Moonlight Basin
by R. Tom Gilleon

Legends may be born at Augusta, St. Andrews is the storied home of links and Pebble Beach, well, is Pebble Beach. But is there a more unique experience than golf set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains? As artist Tom Gilleon says about The Reserve at Moonlight Basin, “There is absolutely no way golf can spoil a good walk here.”

If the grandeur of this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Big Sky, Montana can’t inspire your game, consider yet another bonus of golf at 7,500 ft: your ball soars further. At higher altitudes the thinner air offers less resistance. Every 1,000 feet of altitude above sea level can add 2% more distance to a given shot. Expect to gain an additional 10% or more of ball travel on a full swing.

With 16th Hole, The Reserve at Moonlight Basin Gilleon has captured the sense of scale, beauty and stirring majesty of alpine golf. You have two forms Fine Art Edition to choose from on this stunning piece - a 24” x 20” canvas Giclee in an edition of 50, or, a 20” x 16” paper Giclee with an edition of 100.  Whether you had the opportunity to play at Moonlight Basin or simply have a passion for the game and a love for the mountains this Tom Gilleon Fine Art Edition is for you.

About R. Tom Gilleon

“Looking back, I was probably most influenced by the old era art directors and illustrators who had the amazing ability to quickly and simply tell a story or convey a feeling with their artwork. I believe that this simplicity and strength is the key to fine art. Light, color, value, composition and line are paramount in importance.” – R. Tom Gilleon

R. Tom Gilleon’s art is hard to pigeonhole. His interpretations of the American West are genuine and unique. His representations of native teepees are archetypal and primitive in their basic forms yet they are remarkably contemporary in composition with a sprinkling of personal symbols and humor. Gilleon’s work is coveted by collectors, increasingly finding homes in prominent museums and auctions such as the Coeur d’Alene.

Gilleon was born in 1942 and raised in Florida by his grandparents in the tiny outpost of Starke, near Jacksonville and the storied banks of the Suwannee River. His grandfather had immigrated to the United States from Scotland and became a renowned cabinetmaker. His grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee.

Gilleon earned a scholarship to play baseball at the University of Florida where he took courses in architecture. He served in the Navy in the early 1960s and then worked as an illustrator for NASA’s Apollo space program. Eventually, he went solo as a freelance illustrator based in Orlando and was hired by The Walt Disney Corporation to deliver conceptual sketches and designs for its Disney World theme park. Later, he moved to California to work at Disney’s Imagineering studio which designed Epcot Center and then Gilleon assisted in the planning of Disneyland Tokyo, Disneyland Hong Kong and Disneyland Paris.

The American West left a mesmerizing impact on him as an artist. Gilleon and his wife first built a home along the Dearborn River in Montana, and later purchased a ranch near Great Falls not far from the legendary Old North Trail where native peoples traveled millennia ago from the Arctic to the desert Southwest. Here Gilleon found clusters of teepee rings from encampments which inspire him to contemplate how the camps might have looked centuries ago.
