Along Going to the Sun

From April 2020, for a year, I posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts. Some of these paintings are still available.

“Along Going to the Sun”, 28×22, oil over acrylic on canvas

[Nov 4, 2020]

While the nation impatiently waits for the results of the national election, how about a brief diversion from all the news! Let’s fly off to Montana…

One of the spectacular drives in the world is Going to the Sun road in Glacier Park Montana, It’s a spectacular 52-mile road that winds over passes, crosses the Continental Divide and travels through incredibly varied terrain—from glacial lakes to jagged cliffs. The views are spectacular at every turn, and for some, the steep terrain and hairpin turns can cause a bit of vertigo! From the “vinnustofu sóttkví” is a painting of one of the landmarks along this amazing road. Right at Logan Pass sits Reynolds Mountain. With an elevation of over 9000 feet, it towers over the pass like a citadel guarding the treasures of the high mountain terrain.

This painting of the iconic peak was actually an experiment. Most of the underpainting is in acrylic, and then finished off with oils. 

Glacial River

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

“Glacial River”,28×22, acrylic on canvas

July 9,2020  I have been posting a lot of my older acrylic paintings as my daily diversions from the virus/riots. When I switched back to oils several decades ago, I also loosened my style somewhat.

Today from the “Studio Trammel” is another old favorite. It is somewhat a composite of two scenes in Glacier National Park. I liked the look of the cataracts, but the background was uninteresting so enhanced the mountain.

BTW, some of these paintings are still available if interested (including this one), just private message me.

Glacial Falls

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

“Glacial Falls”, 30×40, acrylic on canvas, available

June 19, 2020 Today begins the eleventh week of my daily posting of one of my paintings as a brief diversion from the virus bad news. That’s over 77 paintings (some days I posted several), and am not close to exhausting the supply, nor synonyms for the word ‘prison’! I greatly appreciate all the likes and comments! BTW, many of the paintings are still available if interested.  

Today, many businesses in my area will be allowed to reopen in limited capacity, and much of the country is in the same process.

Anybody want me to continue these daily postings?

That said, today’s offering from the “Studio Clink” is an old acrylic favorite of a waterfall in Glacier National Park. It is still the painting I use on my website home page. It was painted from a photo I took in the early 80’s, but after much research, cannot find the name or exact location of the falls.
