Glimpse of Montana Watercolors - Michael Koski
As a Red Lodge, Montana, native, Michael’s relationship with the mountains of Montana developed early in his life. Fishing trips in the Beartooth Mountains with his grandfather reinforced his appreciation of nature’s beauty, as well as fostered a curiosity of geology. Michael went on to earn a degree in geology from the University of Montana, always mixing art classes in with his science curriculum. He considers himself lucky to have taken classes from Ben Steele at Eastern Montana College and Dr. Dew at the University of Montana. As his geology career marched on, Michael continued taking workshops with many fine local and regional artists whose influence is seen in his art. After 39 years in geology, it was time to work on his second passion and focus on watercolor.
Watercolor’s magic helps me capture life’s inspirations. I continue to grow as an artist, enhancing my skills, occasionally successfully merging magic, subject, and mood to produce a timeless piece.
