Artist of Many Mediums

The ability of a TRUE Artist is never limited to one medium, and this has been proven over the years through the life of Jeff Bridges. Be it through his photography, music,  or the impressive list of films he has acted in. His creations seem to be a by product of just living his life and recognizing those around him in his journey.

In 1986... I stood by the on a bluff  over looking the North Fork of the Flathead River at Coal Creek with Tom Ladenburg and Jesse Wade. Two very unique individuals in this wilderness near Polebridge, Montana. We discussed plans for a period trappers fort as a financial resource to pull Tom out from under the load of massive debt on the largest private holdings left on the North Fork. The plan evolved into a story/screenplay "Fort Rendezvous", written with the Bridges Family... Lloyd, Beau & Jeff in mind as the three lead characters. Jeff could now play the role originally written for his father in his own and believable way.
