18"x24" Oil Painting
I worked on this piece a little more picking up a little better color and modeling in the talus slopes behind the trees and a little more tweaking in the trees. The line of flow bothered me in the foreground so I reworked some of that and now I think I have a little better movement in darks and lights and in the design of this one. I am calling it finished.

I am now represented by the on line-gallery, Perez Fine arts gallery. It is an honor to be considered by Mr Perez as he represents some really great artists.

I worked on this oil yesterday afternoon after spending the morning still reworking my studio. I think I have it pretty well finished. I will stick a frame on it and put it on my "visualizing" easle to look it over from time to time over the next week or so.

I am still putting time into my studio overhaul but slowly working on several paintings as I go along. This weekend I worked on the canyon walls behind my cottonwoods and even the cottonwoods on the left side.

I have begun this Oil with a first coat of Acrylic and now will begin applying Oil Paint to it

I have been pretty occupied with a remodeling project for the past several weeks and I think I have it under control. At least to the point of getting back to work on my painting if for only a half day for the next several days. I have started this 14"x18" Oil Painting of the Wind River Mountwins from near Crowheart 30 miles east of Dubois. It is one of several that I am doing for an upcoming show.
