I spent the day in the gallery painting on this Oil started several weeks ago. A lot of grass work in between visiting with customers. Working on the detail and trying to get the darks and lights to work. The last hour I went into the water detailing it out. Will hit it again tomorrow I hope. FIREHOLE RIVER 18"x24" Oil Painting on Masonite.

Gary, this is just stunning. I thought it was a photo and even in larger scale, it is difficult to tell it is a painting. Truly a work of art here!

This is great Gary. Just shouts summer. Your grass is really terrific but I am completely enchanted by your water! Wow!

Gary, what a stunning subtle play of light and shadows. I love this! I feel that I could touch those blades of grass.
