Two more early paintings….

July 1, 2011


Below are two more early paintings recently found from Monte’s remaining property.   Again, while Monte would most likely would have preferred these paintings not to see the light of day, these pieces show his artistic progression over the years.

From the depiction of the airborne waterfowl, it is probably a fair assumption the inclusion of the waterfowl in the below illustration was an early attempt in Monte’s career, while at the same time, the reproduction of the aspects of the backwater lake and foliage clearly show his skills at capturing natural environments were present very early on.
