  • Pastel painting of rocks in Flathead Lake. Framed. Pastel painting of rocks in Flathead Lake.
    Water and light are synergistic. Water is see through but light bounces off of it or shines through it for stunning effect. I never tire of exploring how light is experienced in the landscape.

  • Pastel painting of Crane Mountain with sunlight streaming through the trees framed in gold leaf. Pastel painting of Crane Mountain with sunlight streaming through the trees.
    This view is of a rather nondescript spot on Crane Mountain which bounds Flathead Lake on the northeast side. I was hiking one afternoon during late winter and the sun was low on the horizon which created a beautiful pattern of light and shadow on the golden grasses.

  • Pastel painting of Flathead Lake and Yenne Point with gold frame. Pastel painting of Flathead Lake and Yenne Point.
    On this particular morning, the clouds were casting shadows on the mountains allowing pockets of sunlight to shine through. It was such a beautiful calm morning, I quickly set up and painted this while looking out the window. Yenne Point is jutting out into the water in Woods Bay.

  • Pastel Painting of a barn in the Flathead Valley with frame. Pastel Painting of a barn in the Flathead Valley.
    One of the many romantic old barns dotting the Flathead Valley farmland. This one stands at the north end of Flathead Lake and one sees it as they drive from Somers to Bigfork. As old barns are being torn down, I’m interested in painting them as a record of old Montana.

  • Pastel painting of cherries in gold frame Pastel painting of cherries
    Flathead Valley is famous for their cherries. The lake creates a micro climate that is conducive to growing cherries and when it rains, the rain is of the light, misty sort which doesn’t damage the cherries as they are maturing on the limb. We wait impatiently for the cherries to become ripe for eating. All the extra are frozen to add to smoothies during the winter months.

  • This painting was inspired by the area surrounding Somers, MT, on the northwest corner of Flathead Lake. Every season has its beauty and winter is no exception. The colors reflecting off the snow and the brilliant red and orange hues of the leafless scrub willows adds to the effect. Original pastel Image size: 9" x 12" This piece is sold UNFRAMED.

  • The first warm day of the season when one can go out and paint again is so exciting! The promise of summer brings a joyful anticipation of all the fun that awaits us after making it through another winter. I’m calling this series of paintings at the water’s edge, “Loving Flathead Lake.” Anyone who has ever spent any time on this spectacular lake knows what I mean.

  • Flathead Lake is a continual source of inspiration for me. One never knows what the lake is going to wash up. One time we even acquired a Yeti cooler after a storm! This log washed up on our beach in spring. It dislodged and reset itself a couple of times before finally settling in this position. This is a gift from the lake as it will eventually get more buried in the gravel and extend our beach access. Such is the way of Mother Nature on Flathead Lake.

  • Not all beautiful places in Montana have breathtaking mountains. Montana is rich with tranquil scenes of lazy creeks meandering through golden hills. It’s a wonderful place to experience the bygone era of early homesteads and working ranches. This is Basin Creek in the historic mining area of Boulder and Basin, south of Helena.

  • A beautiful fall day in Glacier National Park just before the first snow. McDonald Creek is a popular destination for visitors with its tranquil meandering and impressive falls. Definitely an inspiring location to paint. The water was low enough that I could set up my easel on a gravel bar and paint as if I were standing in the creek.
