I want to do pastels but I just make a smeary mess. You are inspiring me to keep trying, though.

Is this looking East? Missoula is on the West slope of the Rockies.

And is that Rattlesnake Creek? Or? Confluence of Clark Fork and Bitterroot?

I can’t tell you how much I love this. When were you in Missoula? It’s my hometown. I look at Mount Sentinel from my backyard!

LiberalLoner, do you sell your work in a gallery or online?

Oh I would give anything for more photos of Mount Sentinel, I would gladly make a painting for you if you could email me photos of the mountains in Missoula! ❤️❤️❤️

It was where I grew up as a kid, 70-74.

Your work is beautiful and dead on accurate. I’ll PM you to get your info…and get you any photos you need/want. I moved to Missoula in ‘77. It’s sure changed now that it’s been “discovered”.

Your painting is perfectly displayed in the mat and frame you chose for it. You have a wonderful eye for colors and nature scenes. You capture the moments you choose to paint quite well, and your paintings always resonate with those of us who love looking at nature and landscapes and especially at water! It becomes a positive emotional experience for us viewers to just look at your depictions of the awesome (as in full of awe) beauty of pristine landscapes. There is an airy and atmospheric quality to your painting that makes one almost stop breathing so as not to disturb the beauty and the splendor. You also capture the peacefulness of nature on full display. I love your work! It’s inspirational!

I love the contrast of warm light and cool shadows with the rich blue and purple hues. You have a nice way with pastels- Impressionistic. The gold mat and frame and maybe better lighting in the second photo really bring out the warm light and rich tones.
Thanks for sharing.
Love n peace
