The past several weeks I have worked on this 16"x20" Oil Painting on Linen Canvas and finished it today while working the gallery. It is a scene along the Platte River on the Wyoming-Colorado border and depicts back water off the river looking northward towards Kennady Peak. A part of the Snowy Range of Wyoming.
In a couple of weeks I will be heading to Colorado and Saratoga, Wyoming to trade out art work for the season.

Magnifique peinture Gary.J'aime les reflets dans l'eau et l'harmonie de l'ensemble de votre toile.

Gary this is gorgeous! Big sky country indeed. To my eyes, there is a big difference between acrylics and oils. You get such a deeper, richer color intensity with the oils. 'Course everyone else probably already knew that, but I teach myself. LOL

Gary! I've been looking through your blogs, and enjoy the paintings
and photography.
It must be awsome to see the Tetons
at different times.
The wildlife and open spaces, what a blessing!
Your paintings have deep feelings
to me.

I love the pairing of the distant blue mountain with the wonderful sharp contrast in the foreground! I miss this part of the country. You capture it well.

Like so many others, The clarity of the colors in this one stopped me right away. I love the crescent of the river making a place for that mountain blue among the emerald greens.
