Off to Jackson!

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. We had about 6″ of snow on Christmas so had a perfect setting for the day.

We’re off to Jackson tomorrow morning for the Reception for out show, Artist 2 Artist at Altamira Fine Art. Before going, I thought I would post another of my paintings and a few of Kelsey’s pieces as well.

This first piece is mine, an oil called “Dwarfed”. It is 20×16. You really do feel dwarfed when standing before the mighty Tetons!

These next pieces are Kelsey’s. We’re very proud. She has some wonderful work in this show!

This photograph is called “Storm From the South” and is a limited edition, as are all of her pieces. This is our country, big and open.

And this piece is called “Ghosts in the Morning”. I love the piece, and the title!

About Me

Stevens’ work reflects the small daily wonders of the land she calls home: the first crocus of spring, the resilient beauty of the plains, or that special sense of hope and possibility that is only found in the West. Stevens is also interested in regional history, particularly the interactions of Native Americans and white settlers during the Reservation Period. Many of her paintings are an exploration of this dynamic and a meditation on the “taming of the West.” From Billings, MT, Laurie began her career as an artist in Los Angeles where she spent 12 years working for the entertainment industry as a scenic artist and muralist for television, theme park, theater and movie productions. She spent time as a member of the Walt Disney Imagineering team, lending her talents to many Disney theme park projects worldwide. She also did some set design, illustration, and matte paintings for several animated childrens’ movies. In the 1980’s Stevens returned to her native Montana, first to the mountains near the Scapegoat Wilderness and then to the ranch near Great Falls where she currently lives and works.
