I had previously posted this painting on my blog but am doing so again to announce that I won the Peoples Choice Award at the Pioneer Museum's Western and Wildlife Invitational this past weekend. it turned out to be a great show as I sold it and another major painting as well as 4 smaller ones. Several good commissions and was tops in the Quick-draw auction. I have slacked off a bit spending some time in Jackson Hole area chasing critters and the light around. today it is back to work as I am a shop keeper in the gallery

Congratulations, Gary! If I'd been one of the People there I certainly would have voted for it! Rippling, reflecting water where you can see the creekbed is extremely difficult -- well, impossible for some of us -- to capture, and you've done it beautifully!
