I have been working on this most of the day to finish things up and think I pretty well have it. After a few more days of drying I will put a few more touches to it but I am going to call it finished. PINNACLE MOUNTAIN STREAM 15"x22" Oil Painting. Odd size that means I will have to build a frame special for it but since I build most of my frames anyway that should be no problem.

Getting those rocks in there have brought this over the top, Gary. I love the autumn (or end of winter) colors. The spring itself...looks like pure Artesian waters and makes me absolutely thirsty!! A beautiful painting that just makes me want to be in this lovely spot!!

It's so vital... great composition and such bold, lush color.

Enjoyed checking out your sketches for deer placement.. can't wait to see them in the painting.

Gary - thanks for stopping by!
Your water just sparkles on this one. And I have to say I love your Arizona pieces. My husband will be hiking down the canyon soon. Lucky guy. Your paintings capture the Arizona colours beautifully.

This is just stunning, Gary! Love the texture of the grasses, the way the tree is silhouetted against the mountain and the water! Fantastic water!

Love this also. The vertical design is perfect, and again, your colors are great.

I feel I could just walk into this painting. I love the way the stream leads you into the middle ground and then you have those mountains rearing up at the end of the journey. This is definitely a favourite!!!!!

Cheers
