Four paintings of mine that will be part of the upcoming Holiday Show at the Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana.  If you are looking to give the perfect gift this holiday season, then what could be more perfect  than a painting of mine?  The show will run from Nov 21 thru Dec. 31.

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.

Extreme Plein Air – 2014 Scotchman Peaks

I went on our annual Extreme Plein Air trip into the proposed Scotchman Peak Wilderness Area this weekend. This year fellow artist Aaron Johnson, and our guide Sandy Compton traversed up into the East Fork of Blue Creek. We saw some amazing country, discovered hidden waterfalls, ate many huckleberries, and created lots of art……and almost died, but that is par for the course.
