The Art of
"Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find a large collection of original oil paintings created in the past couple of years. Wildlife will be the subject of most of my works but, look for many more landscapes and maybe even a figurative painting or two - whatever I feel like painting. My wildlife paintings will be almost entirely of animals found in the Northern Rockies of the Western U.S. - moose, bison, elk, grizzly and black bears, pronghorn antelope, whitetail and mule deer and whatever else I might be excited about."
"I paint outdoors (plein-air) often so be sure to check the plein-air section of the site for future paintings. I hope you'll enjoy spending a little time here and see my view of my home here in Montana - from Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Tetons and Glacier National Park to the occassional wanderings to the Pacific Coast, Southwest or anywhere else that sounds fun."
GALLATIN RIVER LOGJAM
"Gallatin River Logjam" is a painting taken from a plein-air painting and a photograph. I live along the Gallatin River and the spring run-
off leaves these beautiful tangles of logs every year.
Running grizzly bears are a favorite and recurring theme for my work. On a recent camping and fishing trip to the upper Boulder River here in Montana (known for it's large population of grizzlies), I imagined the bears in this setting. "Rush" depicts a mother grizzly charging an intruder. A grizzly with cubs is one of the most formidable forces in nature.
