White Horse

“White Horse” at Iron Horse. I just returned from Iron Horse in White Fish, MT. where I participated in the Iron Horse Art Social and Auction. It was a fun few days. I stayed in someone’s beautiful home and met so many nice people. The whole area was so beautiful and green.I drove home through Glacier which is always magnificent!

Anyway, I had some fun and sold some art! One of the pieces I sold was this one “White Horse”, which is an oil, 20×20. I am starting a series of paintings of white horses, none of which will really be white. That’s the fun of it! It’s amazing what your eye tells your brain and how your mind adjusts that perception to be what you think it should be!

I am also the featured artist at Going to the Sun Gallery in Whitefish tomorrow night during the First Friday Art Walk. This is also the weekend of the Whitefish Art festival, so am heading back over there tomorrow. If you’re in the area please stop by!

Happy Fourth of July everyone!

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.
