It's March, the temperatures are slowly warming and I am so over shoveling snow! Although very grateful for the abundant show pack, spring flowers can't come quick enough.

"Foothill Flowers" is one of my all time favorite pastel paintings. Spring in Montana has such intense saturated colors that are a challenge to paint. The fresh, alive hues can come off acrid in a painting, suffocating the beauty of spring. I felt I achieved a harmonious balance in this painting, successfully capturing a lush hillside and the cool soft clouds that are indicative to spring skies.

Foothill Flowers is 20" x 34" pastel on paper.

I am delighted to have a pastel painting in the live auction and the annual Yellowstone Art Museum Art Auction "Art Auction 46", this event will be held on March 1, 2014.

"Lamar Valley Storm" is a 30" x 40" pastel painting from the Lamar Valley located in Yellowstone National Park. This is a dynamic pastel exhibiting the uniqueness of the medium through the use of many layers of color. I am always surprised how the subtle translucent color layers create a very vibrant relationship that translates the beauty of the light.

The Yellowstone Art Museum is located at 401 N 27th St, Billings, Mt 59101. You can also visit their website auction page at http://www.artmuseum.org/special-events/art-auction-4/

The snow is almost all melted in the surrounding mountains, but, the fields are still green and the grasses are starting to ripen. I love it when you get a cool summer breeze with large white puffy clouds casting shadows as they float through the Gallatin Valley.

This pastel painting "Summer Shadows" is 30" x 40".

I just sent five new pastel paintings to the Gail Severn Gallery in Ketchum, Idaho. These are all smaller pieces that you can see on my website under  Gail Severn Gallery. 

All of these are dramatic paintings having big energy in a small size.

I needed a short break from painting landscapes, just a change of focus. I started painting petunias, daisys, snapdragons and now a rose. This is the first rose I have ever painted, go figure! Because every summer I look forward to picking daily bouquets for Genise.

"First Rose" is a small 8" x 8" oil painting on a canvas panel from my front yard.

First summer blooms are over, now to wait for the second round.
