I have begun another Painting depicting the east face of the Grand Teton experimenting with an early morning light and clearing fog off the top of the peak. It is an Oil painting on Ray-Mar canvas 12"x16"

Wow, all of my "beginnings" should look so good!! I finally used gouache, Xmas card posted on my blog a few days ago - turned out OK but not sure I did it "right"! (Unlike you, the Master!)

Wow, this is amazing so far. I am looking forward to seeing the finished result.

Wow... you have been busy, Gary! This painting looks great even in this early stage.

Enjoyed seeing the progressive steps in your painting of the Tetons...

Wow Gary- this painting in particular looks like it has a grand majesty to it; all your paintings have such a lovely, grand scope!

This is beautiful so far Gary! I love the composition, makes me feel like I'm a mountain climber!

Okay now here's the crazy thing. As a non-painter, who very much admires paintings, I tend to prefer the unfinished work-in-progress versions of things, probably because they're more abstract and I just happen to like abstraction. So I like this image here better than your more complete one. Strange, I know!
