The Road to Pishkun Reservoir (sold)

The Road to Pishkun Reservoir, oil on canvas, 20" X 10", 2009

There are a lot of two lane dirt roads in Montana, with wide rolling vistas. This scene was perfect for the long landscape canvas boards I picked up for this trip. The sun was hot until the rain cme in about halfway along through the painting. I waited it out and returned to the canvas.

I sort of stumbled onto the road to Pishkun reservoir by taking a right turn about 5 blocks from my girlfriend's parent's house in Choteau. The town is tiny, so it shouldn't have been a surprise that within 3 minutes of leaving the house I was in the middle of nowhere.

Hi Mary,

Thanks for the comment! And yes, you're right. The sky really is pretty big out there.
