Muted Montana


Great Falls, Montana
After three days of brilliant sunshine and warm temperatures, the weather has turned gray, windy, and cold. We sample a few of the local attractions - the Great Falls of the Missouri River, the local Walmart. Painting has to be done from the car, parked in an overlook that commemorates the portage around the falls made by Lewis and Clark. The view extends for miles of valley, bench, and mountains, but it is all muted and subtle color. We are miles and many worlds removed from the watery world of the coast.

I heard that you are going to be spending a little time with my old man in Colorado. Have a great time and good luck with the fishing.

You certainly choose your vistas (to paint, drive and sail through) wisely. Montana in the fall sounds (and looks) very inviting.

Come back to this coast, though.
Manzanita by early November???
