This is an artists story. I paint the landscape and occaisionally stillife. I want the viewer to feel the day, a moment in time. I live in Texas and spend the summers in Montana. I love painting in both areas.

Fun in Montana
The final day of Kathryn Stats class was at a great location on Flathead Lake. I painted and island and it was not an exciting painting. May show it later. This was not Kathryn's fault. By the fourth day I was tired and my foot hurt. But did I learn!!!! I am now holding my brush properly, expanded my greens, and painting lightly allowing layering without mud.
This is a potting shed I painted with a group of plein air artists. It was a great day.
Painted this last week with friends. Montana barns are very interesting. This one had a sagging roof and a few missing boards.
