Getting your priorities straight is what this piece is about.

Sinopah Mt.

"Sinopah Mt" is an oil I recently finished. I was camped near Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana this summer. I got up early to plein air paint & take reference photos. The colors & reflections were spectacular.

Plein air painting


I had the pleasure of painting in an Aspen grove in Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado) last week. I had fun with my oils & pallet knife; it felt more like sculpting a painting with all of the paint I used.

Lincoln Gallery's Fall Show 2008


On Friday, October 9th, downtown Loveland comes alive with it's 2nd Friday art walk. I have these oil paintings entered into the Lincoln Gallery's Fall show. The opening is from 6-9pm.

Both paintings are scenes from a weekend in the Maroon Bells when the aspen trees were at their peak and over a foot of snow fell. The colors were gorgeous!
