Hockaday Museum Plein Air 2017

These 12 paintings represent my experiences during the Hockaday Museum Plein air 2017 event which included about 30 painters from the western US and beyond painting in Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley.

The chief Mountain painting was painted in the studio after the event but all the others were painted in plein air.

I spent much of my time on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River which runs along the southern border of Glacier Park. The fall color there was peaking and the light was perfect. It was a great place to set up shop.
