Summertime with a paintbrush in hand!

Ahhh, SUMMER! The sun is out in beautiful Bozeman, Montana and I am happy to find myself back to my first love, painting.  Brush in hand, I've been outside studying the wildly dramatic afternoon thunderstorms, as well as the calm, vibrant summer sky.  I could watch clouds for hours, and oftentimes, I do just that.   Skyscapes, mountains and water are my focus with (as always) emotion-filled color.  I'm feeling out my surroundings and where I'm at, right now, with each brushstroke.  I have to say, the freedom to create with my two pups in the fresh air reminds me everyday how lucky I am. Some people find words with ease, not me.  I find color and shapes to explain my world more than anything else.  And really, I think I always have...
"I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way- things I had no words for."  Georgia O'Keeffe  
Here are a few RAW picture to show you what I've been working on.  As always, some will make the cut, others, well... those are the ones I hope to learn from.  Join me at the Sweet Pea Festival August 3, 4, 5 in Bozeman, MT to see allllllllllllllllllllllll of my new paintings finished and on display! [gallery columns="5" size="medium" ids="2205,2206,2207,2210,2211"] Paint parties are still happening all over town, take a look at my events page and join me to create!

Next week we kick off Sweet Pea festivities with THIS painting at the Gallatin History Museum!

Happy summer- I hope you are all adventuring, painting, and soaking up friends and family in the beautiful sunshine.  :) More updates soon along with new work being posted to my website for sale every week!
