Back from Oregon and traveling the back roads of Idaho where we shot a lot of research material for future paintings. Visiting with family and friends at and along the way we are now back in the studio and gallery and painting away. I have several paintings that I am working on and spent yesterday working on the water of my Firehole River, ABOVE KEPLAR CASCADES, an oil painting. I am finally feeling better with the water trying to get both transparancy and shadow work into it. I have blocked in the right hand side which will be mostly grasses with maybe a few small trees. Undecided at this point. Tomorrow is my big day painting in Jackson at the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival where I will be doing a quick-draw in the town park. Will post that later.

Gary, glad to know that you are back safe and sound from your trip.
This painting is looking very good - I like the luminosity you have achieved so far. Best of luck at the Arts Festival tomorrow. You will be a hit!

Welcome back! Looks like you are quite busy already but you have a good start on your painting.

Joie sans cesse renouvelée à la vue de votre peinture. Lieux magiques que ceux que vous nous montrez. Très belle lumière et force atteignent mon regard. Bonne continuation.

Would have loved meeting you, Kathryn. Had a great time over there and taking in the galleries and seeing old artist friends and meeting new ones. I did really good on my quick-draw-receiving the second highest I have ever gotten. So that made it all the more fun.
