Tower Above St. Mary Lake

"Tower Above St. Mary Lake", 8 x 10, Oil on Museum Board
The second day at St. Mary Lake was hazy because of forest fires. We hiked about a mile and a half to a spot on the lake where there was a view up the valley.


  1. I really like your plein air paintings. I think this is my favorite so far. Love the colors in the sky. It's very warm, which is what I think appeals to me.
