She Still Stands for Freedom

I was recently in a PleinAire Competition in Driggs Idaho. It was much fun meeting many artists from around the country! It was fun but much work, spending many hours on our feet painting scenes inspired by nature. Also inspiring nature to bite, heat and sunburn it’s subjects 😅… I was painting with a long time friend of our family. A great artist and also a retired USAF. We took extra joy in having our children visit and gather for dinners. On the last day, I was wondering about doing one last painting?! I was feeling very grateful for the time spent in this all-American town with plenty of flags lining the streets. As I took one last walk, reflecting on the beauty of Our Country and our visiting sons, also in service of this country. The clouds began to loom, the winds blow and thunder began to roll. It reminded me of the hard times, divisions and all the bad news! I looked towards the Teton’s and there she stood, beautiful, colorful and not afraid and so I painted her! She’s the symbol that will always inspire me and she still stands for Freedom! God bless America 🇺🇸

I love being outdoors, backpack full of paints and in search of beauty. It's my passion to capture a scene with my paint brush then bring the vibrance and beauty of nature indoors and shared at an affordable price.
