“Montana” Mixed Watermedia on Yupo 9×11″ ©Ruth Armitage 

This is the first in a series of images I’m working on. My son & I took a trip to Yellowstone National Park several years ago, just the two of us. He is a geology major, and it was wonderful to see his eyes light up when watching the geysers, but I enjoyed the natural scenic beauty, the hiking and viewing the animals!

Waterfalls have always attracted me, and I have been working on different versions of this painting. More to follow in the coming days, I’m sure.
