Ever since I came to Montana in 1973, I have been drawn to the Crazies. The mountain range stands by itself. Is singular. Of course, I identify.
They have been a backdrop of my life for 47 years. My actual forays into them have been more limited. Rising up out of the plains rather than interconnected like the nearby Absaroka Range makes them a faceted jewel that can be seen whole. There are many stories about the Crazy Woman who inspired the name. All of them involve a woman by herself living for a time in this harsh, stark, beauty.
My goal in each painting is to find truth. The land and its stories offer one part and me and my abilities and my own intransigent stories another. It is an active improvisation. It takes being in the right place at the right time.
