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.
