Well, believe it or not, I’ve put the finishing touches on the first eight paintings for my July exhibition at Ventana Fine Artin Santa Fe. I thought I’d share a sneak peek with you.
Here’s a painting that leans a bit more strongly toward realism than is typical for me. But looking across the hillside south of my new studio I was taken with a stand of still needle free larches. Here in Northwest Montana the larches turn a brilliant golden yellow in the fall just before they drop their needles, and in the spring make an even more stunning display when the new needles emerge in a bright chartreuse color. I love larches!
