What a beautiful autumn we have been having here in Montana! I hope that it is just as colorful and brilliant where you are, too. I have just completed a new body of work for our 2014 Triple Creek Ranch Artists Workshop Weekend, and am excited for the upcoming festivities at this amazing place in the coming week. It is such an intimate and extraordinary artistic experience, as much for the artists, I believe, as it is for the art-loving guests who attend! Triple Creek Ranch is already planning our workshop again with Brent Cotton, Nancy Cawdrey, and myself for 2015, during the weekend of October 22nd-25th. Space is limited and fills up quickly, so if it is on your wish list for a unique artistic adventure in the coming year, this will be a great way to enjoy the beautiful Montana Rockies autumn in the Bitterroot Mountain Range, at a world-class Relais & Chateåux resort AND celebrate the Arts with us!
"Continuing the Legacy: The Russell Skull Society of Artists" first-ever exhibition will be on display at the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana, from October 21st, 2014 through January 17, 2015. This extraordinary exhibit will feature works by Charles M. Russell and his contemporaries, and one masterpiece from each Russell Skull Society Artist. My painting, "Starry Starry Night" (on generous loan from its owner) will be included in this show. It is an exhibition not to be missed! I am truly honored to be invited to be included in the Russell Skull Society of Artists.
There is something about the light that filters into my studio windows in the fall and winter months that seems to open new doors of inspiration for my paintings each year. I am very much looking forward to the months ahead of painting away in the studio, while I prepare a major body of work for the upcoming C.M. Russell Skull Society of Artists Exhibit, during The Russell: An Exhibition and Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum, March 19-21, 2015. I will also be working on several new works for Samarah Fine Art's showroom at the Out West Art Show and Sale (check them out on Facebook while their site is under construction!), at the Best Western Heritage Inn in Great Falls, Montana during that same action-packed, one-and-only Western Art Week in Great Falls, Montana! I have so many ideas and new inspirations penciled out for these major events, and am so looking forward to starting on them as the snow begins to fly! Happy Fall!
