Artist’s Comments

I’m always inspired by the grace and agility of these magnificent Mountain Goats as they ascend the steep and dangerous cliffs in Glacier National Park.  These goats survive in a very unpredictable environment that has changes in the weather, the seasons, and with food and water supplies. Their existence depends on careful navigation in the mountains and having strength and flexibility to find their next meal. The Mountain goats are subjects that I frequently include in many of my paintings.

As an artist I relate to these resilient creatures in many ways, especially because artists are required to navigate through difficult and complicated seasons of artistic and collector’s preferences and tastes as they market their artwork in galleries and art shows.  Frequently, it is difficult to gain popular public recognition that translates into art sales and financial security. Being an artist is not easy and it’s not easy to follow and paint one of these sheep. Ultimately, it is because I am an artist that I can search for and paint these wonderful animals and inspiring scenic places. What a fantastic and rewarding life  we artists enjoy because we pursue the adventure of painting from nature and life.
