In the Pines

November 11, 2020

This is what the road through Bad Rock Canyon on the way to Glacier National Park looks like - sort of. Up around Hungry Horse hundreds of lodgepole pines skitter by as the highway winds through the forest. If you’ve ever driven that stretch of US 2, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I WILL say I was inspired by that landscape when I started this painting, even though it is, as usual, anything but a literal depiction of that scene. And in the interest of giving credit where credit’s due, I feel obliged to say that Damien Hirst’s ubiquitous cherry blossom paintings were highly influential.

"In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines.

And we shiver when the cold winds blow.”

~ Huddie Ledbetter

Let's keep in touch,
