Spring Thaw, Libby, Montana
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas
(painting continues on sides, framing is optional)
Just got back from Montana. Had a family reunion and memorial in honor of my grandmother who passed away a few months ago. Mixed emotions. It was great to be home, even though it was for a sad event.
I saw a huge bald eagle, so I included it here. I also saw deer, elk, wood ducks, and Canadian geese! so exciting.
All the creeks and streams are gushing with melting snow right now. Quite a muddy mess in some places. I still found it so very beautiful, and the cold mountain air is still invigorating.
I couldn't wait to get painting! This was done alla prima. It is the first of a series. Hopefully I will get to do quite a few more.
Please bare with me, with commissions and custom work on large canvases my small daily paintings have been on the back burner for now.
