reflections


As promised, the day is a little rainy and cool. We have the pleasure to celebrate Father’s Day honoring Les and letting him be the kind ogt he hill for the day and reflect on my dad who has passed some 20 years ago… Les, Kate and I enjoyed a breakfast at the Stone Hut (one of the best WW breakfast spots) and then a little drive in the country and a visit to Hastings. Justin came over early afternoon and will stay for dinner. Les and Justin are enjoying some TV sports and relaxation for the afternoon. Kate and I are about ready to make a chicken artichoke and mushroom baked dish and top it off with strawberries and cake. Klicker strawberries are fresh now and there are none better.
Not much art stuff happening today…however…next weekend is the “SALE”….yard sale, art sale…good prices on framed and unframed originals – watercolor and pastels, monoprints, giclee prints…some old and some new…It will be Sat/Sun June 27-8th starting at 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Emails will go out….as well as notice in UB…may hae some unused art supplies as well. I am toying with getting rid of some watercolor paper – Arches – because I just don’t use a whole lot of it.

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
