Watercolor paintings of wild birds and their habitats.

Sid Frissell is an watercolor artist who creates paintings of natural environments, usually containing birds. His paintings are generally representational, but often contain both realistic and impressionistic elements.

Frissell has shown his work in galleries around Montana and in group shows in Montana, Wyoming, California, Arizona, Washington, Idaho, and Kentucky. His work has received awards at the California Wildlife Open, Wind River Valley Artist's Guild Annual Show, the Wings Over the Platte Show in Nebraska, and the Arts for the Parks competition in Jackson, WY.

After a 27 year career in natural resources education, research and administration at the University of Montana in Missoula, Frissell became a full time artist in 1993. He works from his Stevensville studio in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana.
