As Summer into Autumn Goes 24x24 for web
When the leaves turn golden and the air is crisp, the world is mystical. The first snow on the high peaks tells of the time to come. SOLD.
Storm Coming In 30x40
There’s nothing more compelling than the sight of a Montana storm rolling in over the mountains. It’s best to pay attention, as we are not really in charge when it comes to mother Nature! SOLD.
The Home Place 16x16
Just as you turn into our Y Worry Ranch, this view is ahead of you. Mount Cecelia rises protectively over the Knapp Creek
valley; the early morn casting a pink hue over this majestic lady. The people of the neighboring ranch house are already awake at the start of a new day. Private Collection
East of the Divide 12x16
Just as you crest the hill going east and drop down into the beautiful Augusta, Montana valley, this is your view. The front range of the Rocky’s, and Scapegoat Mountain always makes me smile. This ranch was the home of good friends. SOLD.
Trois Seurs 12x12
Trois Soeurs, or Three Sisters is one of the series of paintings I’ve done of water lilies. This one is truer color than many. For some reason, many of my water lily paintings have gone to the pink tones! SOLD.
Evening # 2 8x8
This is the second piece I did from the same subject, this in a much cooler palette. It was fun to do the two very different paintings. Private Collection
Last Light of Day 8x8
Driving through the canyon at dusk I caught a glimpse of this tiny sliver of light on the top of the mountain, just before the sun went down. It’s exciting to see something so special! Private Collection.
Water Lilies 20x24
I’ve done quite a few paintings of water lilies over the years. This was the first painting, and still one of my favorites. They were all inspired by beautiful places in Montana or Yellowstone Park where I’ve happened to find the lilies growing. SOLD.
A Good Day 16x20
Brown’s Lake was the place a few Mom’s and I took kids camping, a quiet lake with calm water where the kids could kayak and play. I’ve done quite a few paintings of that pretty place. SOLD.
Late in the Day 20x24
Summers when my girls were little sometimes meant camping trips with a few friends – Mom’s and a pile of kids. This is reminiscent of that time, late in the day when the water was like glass and crimson in color. SOLD.
Beneath the Mountains 11x14
Painting en plein air south of Missoula, I did this painting pretty much on location. I’ve always liked it as it has a fresh style I often don’t get when doing a studio painting. There are reasons we should all paint outdoors more often! Private Collection
First Bloom 12x16
Summer Storm 12x16
I just love the look of the summer storm clouds as they roll across the horizon, especially at sunset. This cloud bank was escorting in a much needed rain. SOLD.
Spring Willows Along Beaver Creek 9x12
In the spring in Montana, the colors of the landscape gradually present themselves in a beautiful unfolding display of subtle color. I find the spring willows to be so pretty, the branches turning a beautiful yellow as they awake from winter’s sleep.
The Blue Gate 8x10
A friend and I were painting these old buildings along the river one summer. I loved the blue gate, a testimonial to past life. SOLD.
Time of Yellow Leaves 20x24
Fall in Montana brings not just beautiful fall color, but sometimes crisp cold, the pungent smell of decaying leaves, rich wet earth, and the fresh smell of the wind. Every time I see this painting I am reminded of that cold, foggy beautiful day – and trying to stay warm while we painted outdoors!
A Shady Spot in Paradise 20x20
One of the things I love about nature is the camouflage that serves to protect so many creatures. This little frog’s coloring, and also the fact that he was hiding behind the lily flower made him unlikely to be seen, even when looking in that direction. Wonderful! Private Collection
