Spring in the Swan Corridor near Condon in northwest Montana is a challenge for an outdoor painter. One is always waiting for the light that is so often fleeting as the heavy clouds move through. At this moment, an autumnal sun illuminated the meadow beyond. This was painted onsite with a few touches added in the studio.

Coming home from cross country skiing one winter day, I snapped a photo from the car as we passed this warmly-lit scene. The colors on the snow reflected the winter sun and shadows while the darkness of an approaching storm provided a backdrop to the landscape.
