Just returned from a horseback trip into the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The great part was that I was able to attach my painting gear onto the back of some unsuspecting mule. Another bonus was that I got to eat much better than I do on most of my backpacking trips. Here are my paintings from the trip, as well as a few photos.
I found a spot on the rocks below the dam this evening, and worked up this little watercolor/gouache sketch.
A quick digital sketch. Playing around with forms, sampling old paintings of mine….and going with the flow.

I’m pleased to announce I will have 2 pieces of art coming up for auction this fall at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane Washington. For more information contact the museum for dates and times.
A quick gouache sketch at the mouth of Prospect Creek as I try to beat the summer heat.
I love painting in the mornings after a good thunderstorm in the night, and the hole valley is covered in blankets of rising mist.
I love these turbulent spring days that bring a mix of sun and rain. They end up filling the sky with a beautiful tapestry of artist clouds.
A quick plein air sketch this morning between the passing rain storms.
A couple of quick plein air sketches today as I found a nice spot below the dam to witness it’s raging fury.
A quick plein air this evening on Rives BFK. This lonely looking pine out on the flats captured my attention.
