Warm Light, Cool Air

I love the mountains. Being in Idaho and a short drive from the Tetons, I’ve grown up, hiking, biking and fishing and camping throughout the mountains. This piece reminds me of waking up in a cozy, sleeping bag and the air just being cold enough you’re playing chicken with you crawl out first to start a campfire and get some warm water started in a kettle. In the mountains it’s all about the light. The warm globe campfire makes you feel like everything‘s gonna be OK and a sunny day warming the air is so nostalgic for me. I tried my best to capture those emotions in this painting
