I recently donated a painting to a local organization's annual fundraising gala. The event was held to raise money for the Big Sky Community Organization who funds projects like our community trails and parks. I was happy to donate a piece for their silent auction and chose to paint an iconic scene of Beehive Basin in the summer. A very popular trail to hike in the summer, the meadows on the way up to the mountain basin offer an amazing display of wildflowers in late June and most of July. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to donate something to help raise money for our local parks and trails that we appreciate and use so much living in Big Sky, MT!
