These are the paintings from this weekend's trip to Hope, Idaho and the Scotchman Peak Wilderness area. The paintout , and the resulting art show are to raise money to promote the creation of this wilderness area on the Montana-Idaho border. Was a great couple of days, met some great and talanted artists, and enjoyed the solitude of painting on the "edge of the wild country" The show will be up in a gallery in Hope till after Christmas. All paintings are acrylic latex on masonite wood panel.

This is the production of a couple of days in the studio, working on the Montana Elevator series. I am expierimenting with many grounds, some common, some expensive to see how the paint reacts and allows itself to be worked. This piece is acrylic latex on post consumer paper. I try to capture the " larger-than-life" feel of these structures and how they appear to be as castles in the wheat fields. More will follow
