The End of Summer

To be exhibited at the C.M. Russell Museum

This new painting features the time honored medium of egg tempera and was painted on a traditional gessoed board, prepared by the artist. Egg tempera is valued for the intensity and radiance of colors, remaining beautiful for centuries. The artist uses natural ingredients, various rock and earth materials ground to fine powder, to which he adds water and egg yolk. 

The End of Summer measures 20 x 30 inches and will be available for purchase at the Russell Event, an exhibit and fine art auction at the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana in March 2017. Go to the museum website for more information and to purchase.
