Montana Sky

So my dear friend and neighbor graduated this weekend with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I couldn't figure out what to give her for a graduation gift and finally settled on doing a painting. She is going to be a large animal vet (equine, I believe), so I thought of painting some horses. I also thought of painting our lovely home town, but didn't know what her favorite spot was. So I decided to paint her a Montana landscape, since it is her favorite state, though I myself have never been there. Here it is, in all it's complete glory. It is quite huge, and I let you decide if it looks anything like Montana.

Nonsense, you are doing a night scene, which is far harder, and I am sure your clouds will actually look like clouds unlike my monstrosities.

you haven't seen it yet:)
BTW i am SOOO glad you understand the whole atmosphere/hazy thing in landscapes (by making the closer mountains darker than the ones farther away.) i am amazed at how many people don't actually get that.
