"Pet House Mountain" 2009 oil on canvas 24" x 30"

In this 2009 painting, a purple polka dotted cat perches on a rooftop, while a squirrel contemplates his nut supply. Various small furry and feathered creatures inhabit the structure, the house that chirp built.
The painting is among the thirty paintings on display in downtown Great Falls, Montana. There are abstract, landscape, and portraiture included. Large-scale oils--the biggest is 55" x 88" and
mid-size oil paintings, mixed media paintings on paper are on display. Montana landscapes, some horses and riders, children, animals, and even an enormous monkey pod tree from my home state of Hawaii are some of the themes included in the show.
