Subtle Horizon early foggy morn… Great Falls.
Here is one of my favorite shots at Giant Springs State Park
It was taken a couple of years ago when the whole park was covered in beautiful snow and the trees in a coating of frost... steam was rising from the springs to complete the scene. More photos to come.
New Item at Montanastills.com - 6"x8" oil painting "Rosebud"
It's been awhile since my last post...crazy, busy summer:)
This is a oil I started a long time ago and just got around to finish it up. I just wanted to paint a simple sunset - no distractions... no mountains, or flowers or fence posts... just a sunset by itself.
In reference to my previous post "Sunlight on Leaves", I have had a few inquiries If that was the photograph or a picture of my oil painting.
It was a picture of my oil painting, Needless to say I took it as a wonderful compliment. Below I've attached the photo (left) and Oil (right).
This is one of my favorite oils. Taken from a photo I took while we were at Coit Tower in San Francisco. A beam of sunlight was streaming through the leaves and brightly highlighted a small section of the hedge.
Here is a oil painting I am working, taken from a photograph I took of the Missouri river somewhere between Great Falls and Cascade. The quiet subtle beauty of the landscape, with the reflections of the trees in the slow moving Missouri, I thought would make for a wonderful composition for a painting.
As promised... here is a collection of photos I've put in a limited eight card collection of note cards available at MontanaStills.com. Three of the images were of the old Central School by Conrad, MT, the other was taken inside the hotel at Garnet Mt. , a ghost town located 20 miles from Drummond, Mt.. Enjoy the rustic beauty of some of Montana's storied history.
Some more colorful closeups from my Montana garden, which are now available in a limited edition pack of eight blank note cards at Montanastills.com. The photograph of the leaves I have turned into an oil painting which I will share some images of at a future date.
Next blog will feature some photos of the rustic beauty of abandoned buildings around Central Montana.
Photographing flowers is one of my favorite hobbies... The bright colors and the sharp contrast of the dark background make for some visually appealing images... Here are some of my favorites I've taken over the years. Now available in a eight note card pack at Montanastills.com
