After my crush of spring and summer art shows, I was very grateful to have some time away from my home, studio and art tent. We are lucky to have family in western Montana and like to visit them during the two months of “high season” in July and August.
Rather than flying, my family loads our trusty van and treks west across some tremendously beautiful topography. My favorite area has always been North Dakota, where undulating yellow-green fields of rapeseed surround glacial lakes of amazingly dark blue water. Somehow driving gives me a different sense of the land than flying over it.
