IT’S COLD! We are having some of the coldest weather in a few winters. I think we were right at 0′ F. last night; up to 15′ today! The snow has piled up and yesterday it was absolutely beautiful out side. There is about 12″. The back yard doesn’t have a track through it – it is a pure undisturbed blanket of snow. Check out the sunset off Harshaw Road before the storm…
Kate spent three days with us. It’s great to have her come and spend time. She made the coolest pillow covers for a friend by adding ribbon and a variety of buttons to a pillow case. Zebra ribbon, zebra buttons and then threw in some turquoise shell buttons of various sizes. really a nice composition.
I am working on a large pastel of a grain elevator. So far so good. It’s about half completed.

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
