I have begun a new Snow-Stream painting, HORSE CREEK SPRING 16"x24" on untempered masonite. We had snow flurries all morning today outside the gallery window as I and my Gallery Pardner, Tom Lucas slaved away in the Gallery. Folks seemed most appreciative of our Wood Stove we had stoked up.

I began this painting yesterday with an underpainting of Acrylic and then today began overworking with Oils. I am pretty happy with its beginnings and have received good critiques from the tourists who watch and are all too free with their comments.

You got to be happy with this. This is already looking finished and great. The lights are just awesome.

it's looking good Gary.
hey these tourists, i guess they come from places which are much colder so that they will enjoy 'summer' in Dubois:)

I agree with the tourists, this is going very well! You've really got the beginnings of some great lighting down. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how it will progress. Good luck! And enjoy yourself :)

This is looking beautiful! Still getting snow flurries? I hope this means that you don't suffer overmuch with the high heats of summer, at least?

Painting is gorgeous already!!

STILL getting snow? No fair! We're steaming to death down here with highs in the nineties and unbearable humidity. Please send snow!

RE: tourists and "all too free with their comments".... got a laugh out of that one.......... I can't just imagine how "helpful" they are :-)
