Purcell Mountain Lodge Plein Air

What an incredible experience! Words can't express how exhilarating and inspiring this painting excursion was! From the moment I stepped into the helicopter it was a painters dream. Not to take away from the great company and delicious food!

 Every evening before dinner, our talented and entertaining  Chef, strummed his guitar and sang us his mouth watering menu. Thanks for the great food Stephan! Doug, our wonderful and informative guide, made my life much easier as he lugged most of my painting supplies to various locations every morning. And, he or Stephan would come find me hours later and lug it all back!. As we strolled, Doug enlightened me with many history stories of the area and answered all of my silly questions! Thanks Doug!

But most of all, thanks to my wonderful companion Wendy and Mountain Galleries for inviting me along on this awesome trip! We worked hard, ate well,had great conversation,shared a few drinks  laughs, and went to bed satisfied, refreshed and eager for the next day.

I managed to paint 8 canvases. Two of which I need to finish and two need some adjustments. But I was quite happy with my results and can't wait to produce larger works in my studio!
