Bonnie Zahn Griffith grew up on a ranch in Montana. She experienced its big skies from the back of a horse. Today she lives in Southwest Idaho. Bonnie prefers to paint western landscapes en plein air using pastels and oils. With a representational, impressionistic approach, Bonnie tells a story with her paintings. “…these mediums allow my best representation of the landscape with the brilliant pigments creating texture, light, and mood. My goal is to create works that draw the viewer in, allowing their senses to experience it, and make it their own. If that happens, then I have done my job.” Bonnie participates in plein air events throughout the west. She serves as a judge for art competitions, and she offers pastel workshops. Her art is in galleries across the west.
