This painting is mostly about the light. It does also have a regionally famous peak as its namesake. This lovely mountain is east of where I live in North Idaho. I can see the peak when I am out on Lake Pend Oreille.
Last year I took a small plane ride from Dover Bay that flew directly over the peak. At the summit a small herd of mountain goats were milling about. Now when I see Scotchman Peak I think about the goats.
When my father turned 80 he decided he wanted to go sky diving. Half way through that age he booked a jump when I was coming down to visit. My cousin Eric and I both decided to jump with him which was a big adventure for a Friday morning!
My sister wanted to go as well so now my Dad is going to jump again with her in two weeks! He makes 80 look pretty darn good.
I went to Pendleton for my second solo art show. This is something I was selected for about a year ago and have been working towards the event with a lot of enthusiasm. I am seeking out more solo exhibitions for art exposure but also my love of road trips and adventure.
