Oils - Rivers and Streams

Montana is blessed with tremendous water resources —ponds,lakes, streams, creeks, and rivers. From a promatory in Glacier National Park rivers flow in three directions. Those in the north flow to Canada and Hudson Bay. The western rivers feed into the Columbia, eventually to reach the Pacific. While on the east the waters stream to the Mississippi River, and eventually to the Gulf of Mexico. Throughout the state countless streams fill numberless lakes, which in turn feed the numerous surging rivers, the life-blood of the land. These tributaries are filled with gamefish and the streamsides and bordering lands are lushly watered. Wildlife of many kinds—elk, deer, buffalo, antelope, moose and numerous birds—flourish and thrive.

Upcoming Events

Shafers Restaurant

Shafers is one of Bigfork's newest resturants in Woods Bay and features an amazing chef. They also feature some twenty of my paintings—both Western Wildlands and Western Ranch Life. For a special treat find your way to Mountain Lake Lodge for a culinary and visual treat.  

Home Gallery and Studio

I spent nearly three months this winter painting every day from about 10am to 6pm at the Arizona Art Expo. I joined 100 other artist displaying work and painting each day. My motive was to explore a fresh "voice" in my painting style while concentratiing on pursuing an increased "Impressionistic" view. It was an invaluable experience and as a result I finished about 35 new works. These pieces can be viewed at our Home Gallery and Studio at 546 Grand Drive, in Bigfork. Give me a call and we'll make an appointment for you to come by. The works will also be hung on our deck overlooking Bigfork Bay the first weekend in August at the Bigfork Festival of the Arts. 

Stumptown Marketplace

Twenty of my paintings are featured in the Stumptown Marketplace in Whitefish throughout the summer.
