Yesterday I began my idea of a Grizzly with two cubs walking up the river while a Cow Moose and calf are walking the same direction up a river channel. This painting is 12"x30" Oil on Canvas. I will finish blocking it in today and a little detail work as I go. Who knows how interesting this encounter might become.
Today is the National Day of the Cowboy in Dubois and the town is going all out so I will be putting on my boots and spurs. A parade is schedualed along with a shoot out on the square across from our gallery. At the same time I will be doing a quick-draw of my own there. I sure hope they don't shoot the paintbrush out of my hand. I won the "BEST DRESSED COWBOY" last year and will be defending my title again today. {see my posts from one year ago-if you can find it} I just hope it warms up as it is 38 degrees this morning with a wind blowing. Brr.

Oh I can't wait to see this one, Gary. I love the bear and her cubs; such an awesome addition to this beautiful scene! The painting below looks so fabulous too! Rocks and water, mountains and trees...just sublime!

Sorry you didn't keep that crown! Guess it's hard to look like a well dressed cowboy without the boots!

Your grizzly-moose painting is looking good. I like the composition.

Re: 38 degrees.... I'm jealous!! We're having record-breaking heat down here. Heat index just off our coast was 116 degrees a couple of days ago. Move over..... we're moving to Wyoming!
