Glacier Park Plein Air 2017

My back yard growing up in Montana
Where I grew up.
Today marks the day to go full circle in my art journey.  As a child growing up in Northwest Montana, my heart and soul were imprinted with the natural beauty that surrounded me.

I had always loved art and wanted to be an artist living in Montana and painting the beautiful world that surrounded me.

Life gets in the way, things change, paths take a different course.  I didn't become a full time artist until much later in life.  But my heart longed to return to the place where my art spirit was born.
Taking a lunch break with one of my best painting buds, Abigail VanCannon up in Glacier Park.

I began taking little painting trips back up to Montana over these past 5 years.

Last year I took my art buddy Abigail and we painted in Glacier Park.

Hockaday Museum of Art Plein Air show and Sale in Kalispell, Montana

This year, I applied to the Hockaday Museum of Art Plein Air 2017 event.  I was one of 30 artists chosen to participate in the event.  The big show and sale will be this coming Saturday. at the Hockaday Museum in Kalispell, Mt.  

This is full circle now in my art journey.  I return as a professional artist to the place where my art spirit was born.
