I have lived in Montana for over 40 years and during that time I have
produced art to inspire the public.
The one message I want to convey is nature, of any sort, a flower or
landscape, is essentially abstract.   When I am Plein Air painting, the
surroundings fill me with energy that comes forth out of the brush onto the
canvas.  

My drive to reflect what I have seen has kept me painting.  The one theme
I have throughout my paintings is that nature is delighting the senses and
I am trying to give the emotional admiration of what I paint to the people I
will show to.   When I see a mountain, I want you to feel that mountain as
something more grand than anything words might say about a painting.

You can see my artwork at Great Falls, Montana galleries such as Gallery
16, and  A. Hooker Art Gallery. I am also with the 706 Art Guild and show
my artwork at their shows. Studio 706 Art Guild Shows
