I finished the tree and foreground on my Gouache and put the final touches in the foreground. it is a Gouache Watercolor painting 10 3/4"x19 1/2".
If anyone has ever driven Interstate 80 across southern Wyoming you drive by the Snowy Range and Elk Mountain towards Rawlins, Wyoming. It is a 100 mile drive and very picturesque in summer but a "Wish I had never seen this place" in the winter. We have always refered to it as the Snow Chi Ming Trail being that the interstate through here was built during the Viet Nam war. The mountain in the background is Elk Mountain.

Wow, Gary that is just beautiful! It looks great. It kind of reminds me of a place by my house. I love those clouds :)

Hi Gary!.... Looks pretty exciting to "Me"... despite the "block" problem... not obvious in this work! Beautiful!

Hope to swing out Wyoming way someday! This really "sweetens" the
possibility greatly!

Good painting!
Regards,
Bruce

Wow, you are one great painter, and so prolific - you wear me out! I always seem to have too much "other stuff" to do besides paint! Just gorgeous!
