We have started our journey! It all began when Kacy (my husband) finished his masters in Geology. Little did I know he had his heart set on getting his first job in Alaska! From the first day I saw Alaska I fell in love with this state too. We lived in Alaska seven years. We had adventure after adventure in this state. It truly is an outdoor persons dream come true. Then my husband and I started becoming obsessed with watching families traveling all over the world on Youtube. Uh Oh. I convinced him to sell our house (and almost all we had), buy an RV and start traveling to all the U.S. states first (baby steps). I would love to share this adventure with you! I hope you subscribe so you can enjoy art the art and learn as we go.

How to Paint a Mountain Scene, Step by Step...
Step 1 - Sketch your composition. Outline your mountains and the foreground with a flat brush and light colored paint.
Step 2 - Paint your sky. Use your reference photo to help you.
Step 3 - Paint the Mountains first layer. Place down the colors that you see the most in the sections of the mountain. Only add enough detail to help you finish your mountain in the next steps.
Step 4 - Paint the first layer of the foreground. The foreground is everything in front of the mountain. Paint the colors you see the most and block out the shape.
Step 5 - Finish painting the mountain. Use your reference photo and paint the shapes you see in the locations they are on the mountain.
Step 6 - Finish painting the foreground. Don't go into too much detail or you will lose the focus on the mountain. Once your happy with it, your done!
