This mountain is close to Swift Dam, just west of Dupuyer, on the Rocky Mountain Front. When the sun sets in the west, it highlights the ridges and darkens the shadows. The fall colors are beautiful against the blue of the mountains.

Here's a scene of the Rocky Mountain Front, near Swift Dam. Swift Dam is west of Dupuyer, Mt. There's a trail head there, going into the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
A storm had just passed through this area, the light was brassy looking and different, giving a bronzed effect to the fall colors. The blue of the mountains is set off by this color.
I've got a few photos for sale of cowboys chasing cattle. This cowboy uses a stock whip. The light was good, and the bay horse is beautiful.

Nothing's prettier than the tamarack trees in the fall. Those delicate orange needles fall upon the earth, creating a carpet on the forest floor. When you ride your horse beneath the branches, the needles fall onto you and your horse, turning you both orange. The forest floor is silent as you ride across the needles. It's a wonderful experience.
If you like painting details against a soft background, the tamarack needles are perfect for you!

Here's my cat Scarlet, posing for you. If you like to paint cats, she's a good one to paint, lots of personality.
We also have a black cat named Sing Song. She has beautiful green eyes, I'll post some photos of her one of these days so you can create another great painting!

If you're not an artist, and you don't need reference photos, sit back and enjoy the pictures...:)
