I will be packing for a trip into Colorado and southern Wyoming tomorrow. Changing out art in several galleries during most of this next week so today I spent a great deal of time painting on the three paintings I have going. Most of my time was on this East Fork Painting. I have continued on the detailing work and am feeling pretty good about it so far. Has been a struggle geting that bronzie-purple look to the willows that makes them appear as though they are on fire. When the sun hits them at this point befor or after leaves-they are captivating with their color.

Hi Gary - it is really nice to see how this one progressed. It's just lovely. Makes me want to be there. An aside, that trainwreck was amazing. These things happen in the most unbelievable circumstances - and look at the havoc they wreak...
