This piece. Where do I even begin. It has been living and breathing in my mind for so long now, I can’t believe it’s finally in physical form.
I took the picture that inspired this piece when we were home in NW Montana for our best friend’s wedding in August of 2012. Lake Koocanusa – or the Res if you’re local – is one of the most magical places on earth. And I’ve seen some epic nature on these travels.
When I witnessed the unexplainable beauty of Norway, I understood why our ancestors settled here. Nothing else they had seen across the North American continent would have come close to the beauty of their motherland, until they reached the mighty peaks and water bodies of NW Montana.
It took me a long time to realize how fortunate I was to grow up in such unspoiled surroundings.
Lucky for me, it has imprinted my soul and is the root of my inspiration.
This scene; lolling on a boat in the middle of the lake, dusk approaching, total silence but the water gently lapping at the boat and a few happy birds singing to each other… this is bliss.
Those moments of joy, peace, gratitude and oneness with nature. Remembering that we are OF nature and we ARE nature.
Those are the moments I paint.
Completing and sharing this particular piece with you feels like coming full circle.
I left my hometown thinking that my dream of being a full time artist would never actually happen. To pursue other things because I was meant to do other things.
But it just happened in a different way than I thought it would. And what an incredible journey it’s been so far.
This piece is culmination, it is ancestry, it is home, and it is gratitude in painting form.
Cheers to you, my sweet Montana. You are cherished and appreciated <3
