Hidden Lake

Hidden Lake

Edition of 25 | 40″ x 60″ | Giclee This is a well known lake in Glacier National Park. It is about a two mile hike from the top of Logan Pass. While I was painting the field study for this painting, mountain goats came closer and closer until I could have reached out and touched them. I was trying to capture the illusion of distance and depth. The challenge is that in fall the humidity is very low, and at high altitude, the air is very thin so the mountains feel much closer than they really...

Indian Summer, Frying Pan River

Indian Summer, Frying Pan River

Edition of 25 | 44″ x 60″ | Giclee September in Colorado offers some glorious days in the high country.

Edition of 25 | 36″ x 48″ | Giclee This was an interesting story. Close friends of ours invited us to stay in a privately owned cabin/home that is the highest elevation dwelling in the lower 48 on the shoulder of Mount Evans, Colorado. Our two families were all set up in air painting the mountain on this beautiful afternoon in early spring. Then just as the sun was going down, these beautiful mountain goats strolled through the foreground of our painting. I turned and told them, “This just does not happen!” A calm afternoon at 12,000′ and wildlife that poses on...

March Reflections

March Reflections

Edition of 50 | 30″ x 40″ | Giclee This is a stretch of the White River that is on a private ranch in northwest Colorado. The ranch hand and I rode snowmobiles over three to four feet of snow for a few miles to get to this spot. I did a couple plein air paintings and the sun was so warm that our snow machines could barely get us back we kept sinking. The only way to stay on top was to go full throttle all the way.
