An early, unusual oil painting

January 15, 2011

The above painting depicting a mountain stream landscape is quite large.  This painting was tucked in between other unfinished paintings and not framed.  It is not known for certain, but most likely Monte did not care for the look of the painting or the way it turned out.

One item to note is the lone bird of prey in the illustration.  It was not uncommon for Monte to add the touch of the presence of a bird of prey in his pieces.
