Mountain living: this series of paintings was where my art career started many years ago. I still have many wonderful memories of the beauty of the west, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The mountains, lakes,streams, trees, & animals. So many areas look untouched and some areas have been inhabited but still one with nature. Many of my paintings relate to this area so secluded and quiet. Nature, you can loose yourself in it's beauty.
